The alleged danger of the chemical BPA in baby bottles was one of last year’s biggest scare stories. But Angela Logomasini of the Independent Women’s Forum says these fears are unjustified: “While comprehensive studies by the World Health Organization, United States, and other countries have deemed the current uses of BPA safe, the U.S. and Canada have banned its use in baby bottles and sippy cups simply to appease activists. Ironically, some environmental groups now say that one replacement product for BPA plastics may be more dangerous, although its risks are also very low. However, the calls to ban BPA in food containers would be truly more dangerous since there is not a replacement product able to protect us from deadly pathogens like E-coli.”
