Toxicology of Bisphenol a Health Article Review

… Some would say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." These folks would argue that it is in the countries' best interests to maintain production and use of BPA. They may claim that there are general risks in life and consuming a small amount of BPA in one's lifetime is not worth risking the economic futures or stability of a country. These are the same perspectives that have a disregard for human life. These people do not place value on humans, particularly ones that are not wealthy. If and when those in power experience a similar degree of vulnerability, perhaps their attitudes will shift. Perhaps by that time, we will have passed a moment when there were options available.

Only through high amounts of exposure to the compound can an individual experience the potential side effects of interaction.

Politics of Food

Food politics refers to the political aspects that are related to the manufacture, control, regulation, inspection and delivery of food.
