BPA: A Danger or Over-reaction?
By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)
A new report by the National Workgroup for Safe Markets claims that there maybe a dangerous level of BPA (Bisphenol A) in food cans. Muir Glen (General Mills subsidiary) is rushing to remove BPA from its products, but I think people are over reacting.
Isn't there always a fear-raden medical report claiming that a common household item could be dangerous? And the cans uses for storing food isn't much different than the ones that have been used for decades, so why the sudden fear mongering?
My advice to you is to keep storing canned foods and don't worry about BPA. If I were you, I would be more concerned about starving.
What do you think?
