Activism Works: Campbell’s Drops BPA in Response to Health Activism, Outrage

(ACTIVIST POST)   After their products were confirmed to have some of the highest BPA levels among canned foods tested in independent research, consumers have been calling upon Campbell’s to stop using bisphenol A (BPA) in their popular canned soups. Linked to breast cancer in over 130 studies as well as diabetes, hardening of the arteries, and depression, BPA is comprising the health of many. Despite this scientific evidence, Campbell’s and some stubborn public health organizations still continue to assert that BPA is completely safe. Nonetheless, the company is making the move in response to the powerful concerns raised by consumers and health advocates alike, representing a major victory and highlighting the power of vital health activism.

The news comes just after it was announced that the FDA may soon ban the usage of BPA within the United States. With the final decision coming by March 31, the agency said that it is actually considering a ban on BPA usage in all food packaging. It is not yet certain if the FDA will follow through with the decision, as it took the organization 41 months to even respond to the original petition calling for the ban. In fact, the FDA says that the potential U.S. ban of BPA originally dates back to a 2008 lawsuit filed against the FDA by the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

After not answering for an absurd number of months despite regulations requiring the agency to respond after a 180 day maximum time period, court intervention brought upon by the NRDC has finally forced the agency to answer. Now, the final notice will be known at the end of the month. The report comes at a time where many nations are taking action against BPA, with France banning the use of BPA in all food packaging back in February.

Many other countries besides France have already taken direct action against BPA to protect the health of citizens:

  • The European Union, Turkey, and other nations banned BPA from baby bottles as far back as 2008.
  • In 2007, Canada took a stand against BPA and banned it from baby bottles.
  • Denmark has banned BPA in baby food products.
  • Japan has taken action against using BPA in can linings.

Campbell’s removing BPA from their products is a result of real activism, protecting the consumer in the absence of FDA action through grassroots initiatives. With BPA being removed from the industry, it is now time to target mercury-filled high-fructose corn syrup, aspartame, and genetically modified foods.

Slow Kill Holocaust: Proof the Government is Killing You

(INFOWARS)   Proof that the government is poisoning the population. With their stated goal to reduce population worldwide, the eugenicists who run the world state have resorted to any means necessary to target reproduction and fertility, including the outrageous measures identified in the 1969 Planned Parenthood – World Population memo written by Frederick S. Jaffe.

READ THAT MEMO HERE (PDF)

That memo proposes reducing U.S. fertility via postponement of marriage, discouraging tax incentives for parents, encouraged increases in homosexuality, adding fertility control agents to the water supply and encouraging women to work, as well as measures including forced abortions and payments to encourage abortions. Many of these draconian calls for involuntary fertility control reflect some of the most controversial entries in the 1977 Ecoscience volume written by current White House science advisor John P. Holdren & population bomb scare-monger Paul Ehrlich.

From Bisphenol-a (BPA), to GMO crops, fluoride in water and countless other toxins slow killing modern society, the elite controllers have intentionally triggered cancer, disease and sterility while trying to mask their attack through “slow” ambient poisons that gradually drag down the masses as they eat factory-produced foods, drink public water and are bombarded by toxic packaging products of all kinds.

BPA and other synthetic estrogen-mimickers are particularly harmful, and widely used in food-grade plastics, metal food cans, recycled paper & receipts, as well as countless other products– as they interfere with the endocrine system, create gender-bending effects, reportedly cause male infertility, trigger early puberty, contribute to hyper-aging and are linked to breast cancer in adults, prostate cancer in children and numerous other harmful effects.  We participate in our own destruction through the designs of the elite via our own ignorance. Learn the truth, and the truth shall set you free. Read more on how to eliminate and reverse the effects of Bisphenol-A (BPA) and other toxins naturally. Then warn others, and please, share this video with everyone you care about.

BPA found in virtually all canned foods

October 15, 2010 by  
Filed under Featured Stories, Health

(NaturalNews)   Bisphenol A (BPA), the endocrine-disrupting plastics compound that has garnered much attention for its prevalence in infant- and water bottles, is far more common in an even more widely used family of products: canned foods and beverages.

Almost 100 percent of canned food and beverage products on the market are lined with a resin made from BPA, and have been since the 1940s. These epoxy resins prevent the metal of the can from influencing the flavor of the food. More importantly, they prevent compounds in the food from reacting with the metal, causing spoilage and even causing cans to explode.

Exposure from this source is “far more extensive” than from plastic bottles, said Shanna Swan of the University of Rochester in New York. After all, BPA is known to leach from cans into food, the chemical is used in nearly all canned products, and nearly everyone consumes such products regularly.

BPA is known to mimic estrogen and otherwise interfere with the hormonal system, and studies have linked it to elevated risks of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. In January, the FDA admitted for the first time that “some concern” exists over the chemical’s effects.

More recent findings are even more troubling, suggesting that BPA can effect
“epigenetic changes,” modifying the way that the body’s genes are expressed in a way that can be passed on to an exposed person’s children and grandchildren. One of these changes removes carbon groups that lock DNA from being affected by estrogens in the environment. According to Yale University researcher Hugh Taylor, this means that BPA can increase the impact of naturally occurring estrogens like those found in soy, increasing a person’s risk of breast cancer and other conditions.

“It has permanent, lasting effects,” Taylor said. “The adult exposure is concerning, but I think the fetal exposure is worse.”

“I tell my pregnant patients to avoid products containing it. Even a fleeting exposure in pregnancy can cause lasting damage.”
