Canada becomes first nation to officially list BPA as toxic
Grist - 10/14/2010.
By Brian Merchant – Effective immediately, the chemical Bisphenol A is officially considered toxic in Canada. BPA, as you're likely aware, is a chemical commonly found in plastics, food cans, water bottles, and paper receipts. BPA mimics the hormone estrogen and has been linked to a number of severe health woes, including breast cancer and early puberty in women.
Doctor as farmers: how food prescriptions can save our cities
The Atlantic - 10/14/2010.
By Michel Nischan – I was recently asked to talk about Wholesome Wave's new Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program (FVRx) at the Roots of Change Conference in Los Angeles.
