Another Miserable Failure of the FDA — It Will Deny Request to Ban BPA

By Dr. Mercola

More than three years ago, the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) filed a petition with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), calling for the agency to prohibit the use of bisphenol-A (BPA), a known toxin, in products manufactured in the United States.

The FDA failed to respond, so NRDC sued last December, forcing the agency to give an answer.

Unfortunately, their response was like so many others they have given in the past – in favor of industry at the expense of public health.

The FDA announced that it would be denying NRDC’s petition to regulate the use of BPA in the U.S., noting that it would “make any necessary changes to BPA’s status based on the science.”

Well the science is pretty clear; what’s unclear is why the FDA is once again failing to act to protect your health. >
