Health Canada quietly reverses BPA warning

In Polytricks, Uncategorized on November 2, 2012 at 9:20 am

Two years ago Health Canada caved to the overwhelming evidence that BPA was hazardous to public health.  Now quietly this past month Health Canada has reversed itself and claims that ‘studies’ show its safe for everyone, even babies!  I guess the Food Industry put some nice payola into the right off-shore banking accounts.  To hell with public health!  Let the Food Corporations reign!

So what happened?  This about-face took place with almost zero publicity.  The Health Canada press release is full of baffle-gab and bullshit.  Only at the very bottom in the conclusion it states “current dietary exposure to BPA through food packaging uses is not expected to pose a health risk to the general population, including newborns and young children… ”  Oh really?  There are some articles  about this about-face in health blogs but a deafening silence in the corporate media, quelle surprise.
