BPAs and the FDA

I have a new little nephew who happens to be a voracious eater, so this issue is kinda close to my heart. And when the FDA starts under-reporting the effects of BPA (bisphenol A) on children, I'm sorry, but it makes me a little mad. Not to mention that the private consulting group, with strong industry ties, that the FDA hired to perform some of its analyses constitutes a huge conflict of interest. I saw this story last week in USA Today and couldn't pass it up.

Here's the cartoon.
