BornFree Holding Briefing On BPA This Morning!

The BPA debate is hotting up! Yesterday I blogged about the  campaign that was launched by  Breast Cancer UK calling on the Government to take action to end the use of the controversial chemical BPA in baby bottles. This call is backed by NCT, UNISON, The Women’s Environmental Network, The Cancer Prevention and Education Society and CHEM Trust.

BornFree has always opposed the use of BPA and other harmful chemicals in baby feeding products and has never ever used them, ever.

Today BornFree is hosting a breakfast media briefing at the Royal Society of Medicine, London.

The conference will cover:

  • The effect of endocrine disruptors which have been used in plastics for many years on babies and small children
  • Current Environment Protection Agency orders for testing on endocrine disruptors, and the effect of these chemicals on human development
  • Consumer reports on testing for BPA levels in canned food
  • Recent research results linking BPA levels to erectile dysfunction and decreased fertility in men

Speaking at the conference will be U.S. scientist Dr. Alan Greene and Ron Vigdor, President of BornFree USA .

We are so excited by the increased media and public awareness that is happening in the UK at the moment and we support all campaigns to ban the use of these harmful chemicals in products intended for use by children.

Watch this space!

    Fantastic. I hope the government and bottle manufacturers will sit up and listen. I don’t understand why some manufacturers have started producing BPA-Free bottles (Avent, to name one), but continue to produce BPA bottles at the same time. It defies logic.
