Osteoporosis drugs have been over-criticized. After market research shows a different outcome, than the one initially projected.

RecycleHERE is the original talk on this subject last April. 

A new study on BPA in plastics increases the concern that this chemical may be associated with health problems in humans. While the study DOES NOT show that BPA is the cause of these disease states, it does raise the warning flag. This should be enough evidence to prompt real investigations into this chemical. Consider that 95% of us have this in our systems.

Bottom line – I would not change my habits if I drank the occasional soda or bottle water. But if you are drinking more than one a day, you may want to rethink your drinking habits. Remember, cans are lined with this stuff too. If I had babies, I would switch back to glass or find the BPA free baby bottle now available.

RecycleBPA (or Bis-phenol A) is a chemical in plastics which can leach out of the plastic containers into the food products we eat. Previous studies showing precancerous tumors, urinary tract problems and early puberty were disregarded because the researchers injected the chemical into rats rather than feeding it to them. But the federal National Toxicology Program has changed their stance on those studies and is now asking the FDA to reconsider the safety of BPA.  Hear Dr Jim’s take on this issue now…
