Proposals to Restrict BPA Not Supported by the Science

Check out the column by Jon Entine of George Mason University that ran on the Huffington Post earlier this month that explains how proposals to essentially ban the plastic additive bisphenol A (BPA) are at odds with the science on the issue.

One such proposal is alive here in California. AB 1319 by Assemblymember Betsy Butler (D-Marina Del Rey) is currently being considered by the State Senate. This bill could lead to more disputes that end up being the subject of a lawsuit because it establishes a threshold for allowable BPA levels that is so low that it may not even be technologically possible to measure.
