Chemical Fallout

A Journal Sentinel Watchdog Report

Warning: Chemicals in the packaging, surfaces or contents of many products may cause long-term health effects, including cancers of the breast, brain and testicles; lowered sperm counts, early puberty and other reproductive system defects; diabetes; attention deficit disorder, asthma and autism. A decade ago, the government promised to test these chemicals. It still hasn’t.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel recently published the results of their investigation into the emerging BPA scandal.  Highlights include:

  • FDA relied heavily on BPA lobby
  • BPA leaches from ‘microwave safe’ products
  • EPA veils hazardous substances
  • Plastics industry behind FDA research, study finds
  • Donation raises questions for head of FDA’s bisphenol A panel
  • EPA fails to collect chemical safety data
  • Hazardous flame retardant found in household objects
  • EPA drops ball on danger of chemicals to children
  • Warning: Bisphenol A is in you
  • Are your products safe? You can’t tell
