NIH vs. FDA. BPA debate. Too many letters.

Posted Sep 22 2008 5:36pm

We continue to follow the BPA controversy for you. To recap, the National Toxicology Program (of the NIH) released a report stating they had "some" concern for adverse health effects on fetuses and young children exposed to bisphenol-A (BPA). That report led to a frenzy in the baby bottle industry to create BPA-free versions of their bottles.

Now, the Food and Drug Administration says there is no cause for concern.

Which governmental health agency should we believe? Well, we hate to take sides on this one, so we leave that up to you. We will, however, stick to our original advice on this: if there is a simple, inexpensive way to avoid or limit exposure to a potential health hazard, why not avoid it?
