We can but hope this issue is starting to gain some traction.
Bisphenol A could be outlawed in Wisconsin ~ by Jason Ramsey on Sat, 09/Jan/2010
And another more local report:
Interestingly, I noticed this subject pop up a couple of years ago and mentioned it to a number of people. Which is why I was interested in this “takeaway” from the Herald article: – ” Yet when I walked into Auckland stores and asked customers and new mothers if they had heard about BPA, I might as well have been babbling in Aramaic. “
That was about what I found too. No-one was either the slightest bit interested, or inclined to believe.
I would be very interested though as to why the media in NZ wasn’t all over this from the start? Is this not exactly the sort of issue a free and inquisitive press should be actively investigating and warning about?
Finally after it starts to actually get taken seriously overseas we begin to murmur about it here.
For a chemical that is implicated in harm to our children, we have meandered along with a hear-no-evil, see-no-evil attitude, it’s unconscionable.
Our children deserve far better from us. (in so many ways and in so many arenas)
