Kind of a scary article. Basically, anything you eat that was packaged with plastic, will have trace amounts of chemicals in it, which have seeped in from the plastic packaging.
I try to keep my consumption of plastic to a minimum because of how bad it is for the environment, but the chicken I buy is still wrapped in it. Sometimes bananas come in a plastic bag (and I'm sure they're shipped in one) - though, of course, I don't eat the peel. I bring my lunch in tupperware every day. I use those little plastic bags for veggies and potatoes. The frozen veggies I buy are in a plastic bag.
This to me is the worst part:
So the FDA is like "Well, it might be poisoning people, but it also might not be, so there's no reason to ban it."Last month, the FDA denied a petition to ban the chemical, saying in a statement that while “some studies have raised questions as to whether BPA may be associated with a variety of health effects, there remain serious questions about these studies, particularly as they relate to humans and the public health impact.”
