Why do you think other countries are regulating BPA more strictly than the US?

    Canada was the first country to declare BPA as a toxic substance in 2009.  The country has banned BPA plastic from baby bottles and released research on the negative effects to human health.  The United States is slower in recognizing the toxic effects of BPA, and as of early 2010, the FDA released statements that recognized that BPA can adversely affect children but not adults.

    The USA has always been more skeptical about health hazards than European countries. In some cases this has been helpful, such as when the FDA doesn’t approve a drug as rapidly and discovers side effects, but it also means many likely harmful chemicals are allowed in the US because we need “more proof” than all the studies already showing their danger.
