B.P.A. (bisphenol-a) is widely used to make polycarbonate plastics and often used in beverage bottles and baby bottles. Now it looks like it is found harmful to humans.

The United States Department of Health and Human Services National Toxicology Program endorsed a scientific panel’s finding this week that there was some concern about neural and behavioral changes in humans who consume B.P.A. according to the NY Times.
The last word is not spoken yet on weather B.P.A. is toxic. Some scientists question the tests leading to the concerns. The plastic industry is now to be asked to proof that B.P.A. is not harmful.
More details on the NY Times.
