First BPA, Now BSE
Why I find this fascinating, I cannot explain. Like many folks out there, I dutifully replaced polycarbonate water bottles, food packaging, and baby bottles in my house following increased scrutiny of the health effects of BPA. The topic even comes up in Ph.D. proposals. Acceptance of the dangers of plastic materials by the public at large is seemingly easy and quick which is why this report concerning animal-free plastics from Plastics Today piqued my interest. I wonder how long it will be before this concern jumps from materials used in medical applications to commodity applications.
