Bisphenol A and the FDA - Is it safe or carcinogenic?!

I don't know what to believe. Here's what I'm reading, US health regulators now seem to think that a chemical, bisphenol A, used to make plastic for baby bottles and food-can liners that has been linked to possible cancer risks is safe at current exposure levels. For a quick easy digestible read, look at this WebMD article, "Bisphenol A Safe, Says FDA." I like the way the subject is presented in the way of 3 'views':

  1. View No.1: No Need to Worry
  2. View No. 2: Cause for Concern
  3. View No. 3: The Precautionary Approach
I think this issue is complex. If you want to see what I mean, just try to read the 105 page draft report just released by the FDA, "Draft assessment of bisphenol A for use in food contact applications."

If plastic baby bottles worry you, then consider buying this book:
