Let me be clear, I love the Diane Rehm show on WAMU. It is however rare that it covers subjects about which we routinely blog. On January 20,2010, Diane had as her guests two Canadian authors who have written a fascinating book entitled " Slow Death by Rubber Duck."

The book explores the  effects of BPA and other chemicals on our health. http://wamu.org/programs/dr/10/01/20.php#29308

What made the segment particularly effecting was the presence of Mike Walls of the American Chemical Council. http://www.americanchemistry.com/s_acc/index.asp?noflash=1

He seemed to concede that "safe use" of plastics was a desirable practice and that parents had to make judgements about the extent to which they should expose their babies and infants to BPA.

Both the books authors predict that BPA will be banned in many products by virtue of FDA action in the near future.
