Researchers believe BPA poses risk to babies in the womb (ABC News, 10/8/2013)


The ABC affiliate in Syracuse ran two stories featuring the Breast Cancer Fund including one on Target and Walmart's new steps to clean up chemicals in products and another on our prenatal report, which calls for the urgent need to get the toxic endocrine disruptor, BPA, out of food cans in order to protect pregnant women and future generations.

"Consumer concerns have led manufacturers to remove it from baby bottles
and infant formula packaging, but BPA could pose a risk to children long
before they take their first sip of milk, according to the Breast
Cancer Fund."
