If you were about to throw away your baby bottles due to the latest health scare over the plastics they contain, you may not need to go “all glass” just yet. This, according to Dr. Gilbert Ross of the American Council on Science and Health, who notes in a recent article there is no cause for concern over the tiny exposure we face from the plastic component known as BPA. Ross explains that yet again, laboratory tests were used exposing rats and mice to very high doses of the chemical, but that there is no evidence at all of human beings of any age being harmed by common, low-exposure. Since even workers using the chemical in manufacturing have shown no harm, it sounds like the activist babies may not get their bottle after all with this latest hype.
