The Canadian federal government announced Friday it intends to ban the import and sale of polycarbonate baby bottles containing bisphenol A, making Canada the first country in the world to limit exposure to the controversial chemical.

“But the plastics industry has vigorously defended the chemical, noting that it's been widely used for 50 years.”

Hmm the plastics industry said its been around for 50 years so it must be ok for humans, hmmmmm

This got me to wondering. Hmmm, I wonder about other chemicals that have been around for many years. Take organophosphates for instance, the basis of many insecticides, herbicides, and nerve gases. They’ve been around for 150 years. We spray them over our crops and our lawns. Hmmm what other diseases have been around for 150 years?????
