It’s no secret that bisphenol A (BPA) has been controversial for quite some time and has received intense scrutiny from scientists, government agencies, the media and environmental groups. Such scrutiny has resulted in demand from consumers for alternatives to products that contain BPA, and hasty efforts from some manufacturers to provide “BPA-Free” products. While the controversy surrounding BPA may be interesting and important, the controversy by itself does not provide an answer to the key question addressed in this article – Why replace BPA?

What’s trending right now?

Lots of chatter about the safety of plastics:

Are plastics safe in food packaging? Are they safe in carry-out food containers? What about the plastics in my kitchen? What should I do?

Questions like these are the result of pressure groups targeting plastics — the very plastics that have been approved by the U. S.

That makes things tough for consumers who are often inundated with news headlines that promote anxiety and fear and are not always based on science or fact.
