An article on RodaleNews.com offers a digestable overview of the Breast Cancer Fund's recent report, Disrupted Development: the Dangers of Prenatal BPA Exposure, emphasizing that a baby's exposure to the endocrine-disrupting chemical, bisphenol A (BPA) in the mother's womb during the first 11 weeks of
pregnancy can damage development that will only show up years or decades later.
Our program and policy manager, Gretchen Lee Salter, is quoted in the article and drives home the message that cans are pregnant women's number-one route of exposure to the endocrine-disrupting chemical:
"To protect every woman who's pregnant or may become pregnant, the only
logical solution is to remove BPA from all canned foods."
