Wellness Wednesday

Laboratory glassware
The day has gotten away from me and I'm late getting up a Wellness Wednesday post.  I was out of town, shopping at our closest natural food grocery store - and then I got the fantastic news that a grant proposal that I submitted was approved!  So I'm sharing a story a friend linked on facebook about the dangers of the toxin bisphenol A, commonly known as BPA, which is found in food packaging.  BPA is a know endocrine disruptor which can mimic natural hormones and cause health problems.  Read the article here.  According to Wikipedia, BPA has been in use  since the 1940s and is used to line food and beverage containers.  Approximately 8 billion pounds of it is produced annually.
