BPA Breakthrough

Consumer activists have struggled to get bisphenol a (BPA) out of baby bottles and other durable plastics products, including can liners and water bottles. The chemical lobby has maintained that there is nothing wrong with BPA. At last there is a breakthrough. A study now links high BPA levels with male erectile dysfunction. NOW we'll see some action aimed at getting it off the market.

I had a busy day today running around with Sally, who had Veterans Day off. We went to AAA to pick up a travel card and order some New Zealand currency, went to REI for travel clothes, and then to Costco where I ordered my first new glasses in 5 years. Since we're making such an effort to go to New Zealand, it would be nice if I could see it.

Sally made apple sauce this afternoon and into the evening. I made a hamburger casserole and Waldorf Salad which we ate after she got the apples pared and cooked down. Now she's getting ready to can the last of this year's applesauce. Yum!

  1. I just found out that BPA is also used by the Ball Co. to coat their canning lids. But it's "okay" as long as the food doesn't come in contact with it so don't store anything upside down.
