Why is california banning perchlorate when other states don’t?

Why is california banning perchlorate when other states don’t?

Politics: Perchlorate occurs naturally around the world and even on Mars. I'm concerned about many other pollutants, but not perchlorates.

Why did the fda reject bpa ban? Lobbyists?

Why did the fda reject bpa ban? Lobbyists?

Not enough evidence: Use of bpa and human exposure is so very low that it is impossible to determine extent or risk at this point in time. Studies completed are not conclusive enough to demand withdrawal. Nothing to do with lobbyists in my opinion. Studies show micro doses are metabolized and excreted from the body very quickly, limiting potential damage. ...Read more
