Julie188 writes “The Canadian government has formally declared bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical widely used to create clear, hard plastics, as well as food can liners, to be a toxic substance. Does this mean that you’ll be tackled by the Canadian Mounties if you stroll around with some bottled water? Not exactly. Being a toxic chemical doesn’t mean you can’t get a little love. The government will at first try and set limits on how much BPA can be released into the air or water by factories that use the compound.”
