Julie’s Health Blog, a blog featured on the Chicago Tribune website, recently included a story about the potential dangers of the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) and its potential to leach from baby bottles into the milk contained. According to the write-up, research organizations are also now showing that the chemical might be migrating from packaging into foods, especially canned pasta and soup. “The tests also found that pregnant women eating canned foods could be exposed to unsafe doses of BPA and that formula coming from cans to plastic baby bottles has much more BPA then the bottle itself.”

Julie further asserted on her blog that the “independent” government agency currently conducting an evaluation on the toxicity of BPA might be tainted, as one of the consulting companies involved has private sector clients that reportedly include the manufacturers of BPA.
