Bisphenol-A Phobia

Gus Van Horn notes that BPA is perfectly safe, but people prefer to ignore science in favor of their fears.

It’s ironic, then, that Forbes published an article this month on a company that is capitalizing on this fear with BPA-free baby product (which, of course, cost a lot more than regular baby products).  Forbes didn’t bother to mention that BPA is safe.  They celebrated this snake oil salesman as if that’s what capitalism is all about.
