Okay, I have my fairly mainstream family very interested in BPA and willing to make a change once they read up on it more. I told them I would email them a few links with info, but I want it to be the most convincing and factual info I can find.

Do you have a link you can recommend I send their way?

ScienceDaily article on BPA and breast cancer --> http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0401231554.htm

I sent that link to my two dear friends who have/are battling breast cancer.

And this one --> http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servl...andHealth/home

One needed more convincing and her nutritionalist sent her here --> http://www.leas.ca/

www.ewg.org is a fantastic site full of info on harmful chemicals in everyday products

even my mainstream family couldn't argue with facts presented there.

That report is woefully out of date and many of the items listed as containing BPA have now been changed and vice-versa. The report was published in 2001 and has not been updated since.

I know this thread is quite old, but I am going to share it on twitter due to the recent FDA rulings, as it has some good information.  Please contact me directly if you have an issue with that, and we can discuss options. :)
