Angela Logomasini of the Competitive Enterprise Institute defends BPA in the Washington Examiner in light of this week’s possible Senate vote on an amendment to the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act that would ban the chemical in food packaging.

“As she writes in her op-ed, BPA has many important applications for consumer products,” says Dr. Ross. “All valid scientific evidence and all government regulatory bodies that have evaluated this evidence have come to the same conclusion: BPA is safe. Any argument to the contrary is a politically motivated attack on a safe consumer product engendered by a small group of activists posing as scientists, and using ‘novel’ theories of causation of a variety of health effects.”

Dr. Whelan adds, “Our compliments to our friend and colleague Angela for this excellent op-ed.”
