Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says CDC and Harvard release new report on BPA absorbed in adult volunteers after drinking cold beverages from BPA-plastic bottles.

Seventy-seven Harvard student volunteers experienced a nearly 70 percent increase in urinary levels of bisphenol A (BPA), a plastics component and synthetic estrogen linked to cancer, reproductive system damage and other serious conditions, after drinking cold beverages from BPA-laden polycarbonate bottles for just one week, according to researchers from Harvard University and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

 The Harvard/CDC study, is  published May 12 in the online version of the journal Environmental Health Perspectives poses serious implications for the impact of BPA exposure on infants fed with polycarbonate bottles.

I do not know about you, but this study is alarming.  Almost all of us have at least one of BPA-plastic bottles in our kitchen cabinets, gym bags or camping equipment.  I truly hope that the CDC or EPA spend some time and resources to determine once and forall if BPA should be banned in the U.S.
