Bisphenol A (BPA) is a harmful chemical that has been known to negatively affect fetal and infant brain development, as well as interfere with memory and the brain's basic learning processes. Worse, BPA was once used in several types of children's products such as baby bottles and formula packaging — until the FDA ruled that BPA can no longer be used in these products.

This was a significant step in protecting children from this harmful chemical; but BPA isn't outlawed altogether. In fact BPA is still used in various food packaging, soup cans, soda cans, and more. With all of the serious health risks BPA presents, why is it still being used in any products at all?

There are perfectly safe alternatives to BPA, yet manufacturers continue to use the chemical. Write to Senator Dianne Feinstein, ardent opponent to the use of BPA, asking her to draft legislation that would ban BPA in ALL consumer products.

Dear Senator Feinstein,

You are currently sponsoring bills related to banning BPA — but I would like you to take one step further and ask that BPA is prohibited in ALL consumer products. BPA has been shown to cause serious health problems, ranging from birth defects to stunted brain development. Its inherent risks render it completely useless for human consumption.

I am confused as to why BPA has been banned for use in children's products but is still allowed to be utilized in the manufacture of other products, like soup and soda cans and other food packaging. Exposure happens when the chemical seeps from the plastic container into the contents it's holding. However, alternatives to BPA, such as corn-based substances, do not present this risk.

I am writing to ask that you draft legislation addressing the danger of BPA and stand up for the health of Americans.

Thank you for your time.
