The Power of Information

BPA and its health effects are serious business!

Maine's Governor LePage is justifying his refusal to ban bisphenol A with a cheap joke.

The Bangor Daily News quotes Gov. LePage as saying: "The only thing that I've heard is if you take a plastic bottle and put it in the microwave and you heat it up, it gives off a chemical similar to estrogen. So the worst case is some women may have little beards."

Use the form below to sign onto EWG Action Fund's reality check made out to Gov. LePage. We're sending him real science about BPA and letting him know this hormone-disrupting chemical is no joke.

Dear Governor,

I, and EWG Action Fund, wanted to let you know that bisphenol A is no laughing matter. And decisions about whether or not to ban this toxic chemical from consumer and baby products should be taken seriously.

Since you said that you have yet to see enough science to support a ban on BPA, we wanted to share with you some of EWG's great resources about BPA and the related science.

Please take the time to understand the connections between BPA and a wide range of health effects instead of making jokes.
