More On Bisphenol A

Where's J.B. Van Hollen on this story? He's probably enjoying some industry sponsored perks, or not. Relying on industry to do the right thing is like asking a squirrel to leave the bird feeders alone. I hope the "scientists" who helped OK this latest outrage that will be Bu$hCo's pathetic legacy.
In response to a congressional inquiry, Stephen Mason, the FDA's acting assistant commissioner for legislation, wrote in a letter that his agency's claim relied on two pivotal studies sponsored by the Society of the Plastics Industry, a subsidiary of the American Chemistry Council.

One of the studies has never been published, and therefore never subjected to peer review; the second has been heavily criticized by researchers who say the results are inconclusive because of flawed experimental methods.

Bu$hCo's out protectin' the homeland, alright, doin' the hard work. It must be so romantic for Bu$hCo to be fightin' the war on the truth. Jeez Louise.
“I must say, I’m a little envious,” Bush said. “If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed.”

“It must be exciting for you … in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You’re really making history, and thanks,” Bush said.
