Meaningless BPA Study on Obesity

“BPA-Obesity Study Virtually Meaningless,” by American Council on Science and Health.
In April of this year, the FDA rejected a petition by the Natural Resources Defense Council to ban the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in food packaging.

So we were more than a little dismayed to see that the latest issue of JAMA features a study linking BPA to obesity in children and teenagers. Read the full story in ACSH Dispatch.
