Episode Description:

Bisphenol_A. Just how harmful is it to humans, especially infants and toddlers. Scientists, mothers and even small business people gave testimony at a public hearing held at the Civic Center in Augusta on September 6th to a joint committee comprised of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and the Maine Board of Environmental Protection. The board members heard from those who were in favor of expanding an existing law protecting infants to also include toddlers and from opponents. Though the scientists produced credentials, the oppositon's only credentials were that they represented the packaging manufacturers. After September 28th, the Board of Environmental Protection (under powers already vested to them) will decide whether or not to approve a petition to include the protection of Maine toddlers from the effects of BPA, a generally accepted dangerous substance. Those that sat before the joint board ranged from retirees to a four month old baby.
