Hawaii has a serious trash problem www.cnn.com

Originally, some thought a Japanese tsunami caused an uptick in trash flooding Hawaii’s shoreline, but a new survey suggests otherwise.  Plastic that has dangerous chemicals used to euthanize animals, et al.  is washing up on what we use to think of as paradise.  Premier Classic Products has the answer to a lot of this problem.  Visit http://www.pregrp.comHawaii 2

What is the Harvard School of Health Saying about plastic?

  • Local and state governments are banning the sale of baby bottles that contain the chemical bisphenol A (BPA), creating a confusing patchwork of regulations.
  • But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and most comparable agencies around the world maintain that the chemical is safe.
  • They cite a lack of human research data that BPA poses health problems, while discounting considerable animal evidence that the chemical is hazardous.

Questions:

  • Why do countries (like Canada) ban BPA?
  • Harvard showed that students who drank soda from steel cans one week and from plastic bottles the following week had a 69% increase of BPA in their systems. Do we need more evidence?
  • The American Chemistry Council issued a statement in 2010 that there should be a modernization of the regulatory laws.
  • Nothing has been done to date. Why no10996310_10152915988239934_1763325422781426498_n

HOUSE PASSES ANTI-GMO LABELING LAW

Reuters.com reports that the U.S. House of Representatives passed a hotly debated measure that blocks any mandatory labeling of foods made with genetically engineered crops, including pre-empting a state law set to take effect next year in Vermont.

Jonathan Youtt, of Oakland, performs a puppet show during a rally in support of the state's upcoming Proposition 37 ballot measure in San Francisco, California October 6, 2012. The initiative, commonly known as the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, would require mandatory labeling of genetically-modified raw and processed food products and prohibit products containing such to be called natural. While supporters see the measure as part of the consumer's right to know, the controversial measure has also drawn strong criticisms in recent times for being poorly written, increasing costs for both taxpayers and consumers, as well as presenting additional risks of lawsuits against retailers.
