EWG: survey to improve infant formula safety
Thank you, Lisa, for sending us info about this important survey conducted by the Environmental Working Group to improve the safety of infant formula:
"Environmental Working Group (EWG) is conducting a survey on how much formula babies consume. The data will be used to understand infants' exposure to Bisphenol-A (BPA), a powerful hormone disruptor found in the plastic liner in consumer product packaging. Initial studies have shown that BPA can leach into infant formula.
The analysis will be presented to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We need your help to gather food and weight information about *real babies* to understand the magnitude of this potential problem. *Timing is critical!* NIH is meeting in early August to decide about BPA use. Deadline for taking the survey is July 31. The more data collected, the more accurate the analysis."
