IATP and Healthy Legacy

New science on the chemical bisphenol A (BPA), found in many plastics and children's products, links elevated BPA concentrations to an increased risk for heart disease, diabetes and liver abnormalities. This compelling new science has made the search for safe plastic products increasingly important, but good information for consumers is hard to find.

To help eliminate confusion about plastics and synthetic chemicals, the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) and the public health coalition Healthy Legacy have teamed up to provide consumers with two new resources to make smarter choices when shopping.
