Because the full effects of BPA are not known to this day, but has been linked to several problems, its better to have less of it in our society, rather then more.
But keep laughing doctor. Clearly you know alot about this dangerous chemical that has been BANNED in baby bottles and other prodcuts.
You're right, I was being a little bit narrow minded with my criticisms.
I just dislike how the media has a habit of blowing everything out of proportion (I call it flu shot syndrome). They've been studying the effects of BPA for years and still aren't entirely sure of what the effects are as you mentioned. It's good to be aware of the potential risks and areas of exposure but it's bad to do it in a way that will cause people to be unreasonable.
