In a big reversal on definitely saying that the plastic Bisphenol A (BPA) is not a safety concern, the US FDA is now recommending that consumers take steps to minimize exposure to it while further studies are initiated to check for subtler effects of the chemical on the human body.Today, a new ecstatic 'could be' wonder plastic product and use for it is being touted in an article:
"The agency said Friday that it had “some concern about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children,” and would join other federal health agencies in studying the chemical in both animals and humans."
'A Clear Coating, with Green Applications'. Just coat everything in sight with this 'new improved formula' and you won't have to do the dishes ever. Everything would just slide off with a water wash. Now, as a matter of principle, anything that makes for less housework is a winner in my book. Especially dishes. That, and getting off my kids' backs in reminding them to brush their teeth before they all rot and fall out.
In fact, the article's author makes so bold as to suggest in the final lines that:
"Here’s one suggestion for him: Come up with a permanent self-cleaning shield for our teeth. Then, in addition to dishwashing, we could eliminate another chore: daily brushing."Now, wait a minute, before we mob the stores to buy this 'Wonder Wash' ($9.99 + Shipping and Handling, but wait, there's more if you order now from 1-800-WASH...). I suppose it's time to take a deep breath and not rush to conclusions before the FDA investigates the chemicals used in this wonder product .
