Breaking news: New independent study by EPA refutes BPA risk

Talk about fast and furious---earlier this week I posted an article on a study being conducted related to the dangers of bisphenol A (BPA) --- a plastic thought to contain an estrogen like chemical that could be dangerous to the public. This article from Stats.org now says that a new independent study by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) refutes earlier studies that say the chemical is dangerous in low doses. Here's a case where I am truly presenting both sides of the issue (on separate days). Right now my best advice is if anyone gives you a plastic bottle as a Halloween treat---don't eat it. Happy Halloween everyone!
