URGENT: Think Beyond BPA - US FDA must ban BPA from our bodies

FDA must ban BPA. Sign here: http://ow.ly/9KVah

BPA is an endocrine disruptor and can be found in water bottles, some baby bottles, in epoxy resins used to coat the inside food and drinks cans, dental fillings and sealants, and receipts. BPA has been linked to a variety of diseases including autism, attention disorder ADHD, erectile dysfunction, heart disease in women, depression, learning disorders, asthma, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and infertility. People exposed to BPA are reported to have a higher risk of developing prostate and breast cancers, and BPA has been found to decrease the effectiveness of chemotherapy. Babies and young children are especially sensitive to the harmful effects of BPA. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study found BPA in 95% of adult human urine samples and 93% of samples in children. The US Food and Drug Administration cannot wait any longer. FDA must ban BPA by their agreed upon deadline of March 31, 2012. Think beyond plastics, think beyond BPA.
