Reducing Our BPA Exposure
We helped develop and are now advancing federal legislation to eliminate BPA from all food and beverage containers.
Working closely with Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Edward Markey, the Breast Cancer Fund helps to introduce a bill that would ban the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) from all food and beverage containers. The Ban Poisonous Additives Act of 2009 is introduced in March. Throughout 2009, the Breast Cancer Fund helps lead efforts to convince manufacturers to stop using BPA, educate the public about its risks, and craft strong legislative protections for American families.
