“Your assumption is a widely popular misconception.”
Well, judges seem to follow this ‘widely popular misconception’ because they are not very kind to companies that don’t do their homework---- especially when it comes to injuring the public.
“…US Government Accountability Office. They have been reporting on this very subject since the TSCA was enacted in 1976. There are hundreds upon hundreds of pages of reports on their web site.”
I went to their web site http://www.gao.gov/about/index.html
and did a search on “Bisphenol”. I probably didn’t search very well because I found very little about what the GAO is doing. I found a report here: http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d09353.pdf
What I’ve noticed about BPA, it is one of the most tested chemicals ever to come out. Any BPA substitutes will take 40 years to do similar studies.
“I'm curious. Who do you think that is?”
OK, this is what I’ve noticed:
There are two truisms that work in academia:
1. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
2. Publish or perish.
It is these types of entities that depend on government funding or grants.
For example, a guy that raised a lot of ruckus is ’Frederick vom Saal’. And he has an agenda by looking at his links: http://endocrinedisruptors.missouri.edu/links.html
is linked to ‘our stolen future’ which is linked to Al Gore. Mr. Saal’s BPA document shows poor testing and non repeatable at that. So my personal view is his department needs funding and they picked BPA to do it. Now I like it when universities discover new things for us. But when research papers become extremely biased, despite the evidence, I don’t trust them.
