Editorial: Gov. Brown Should Sign BPA Ban Bill Into Law
Now that a bill (AB 1319) to prohibit the sale, manufacturing or distribution of infant bottles or cups containing bisphenol-A is on Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) desk, "[w]e urge him to sign it," a Ventura County Star editorial states. Researchers have linked BPA to numerous health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and abnormal growth, the editorial notes. It adds that the bill would serve as a "measured response to the serious potential dangers posed by this plastic additive."
