Bisphenol A And Baby Bottles

EDM number 293 in 2009-10, proposed by Roger Williams on 30/11/2009.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families and Industrial health and safety.

That this House notes that baby bottles made using the chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) are still being sold in the UK despite being withdrawn in Canada and the US; further notes that hundreds of studies and evaluations published in peer-reviewed medical journals have raised consistent and compelling concerns about the potential impact of low level exposure of this chemical; further notes that the Environmental Health Perspectives Journal in March 2009 published a letter from 36 of the world's leading scientific experts on BPA, criticising the European Food Safety Authority for relying predominantly on two outdated studies funded by the chemicals industry and saying that its decisions based on this logic are misguided and will result in continued risk to public health from exposure to BPA; further notes that babies in their first year have not fully developed the ability to clear BPA from their bodies as quickly as adults; welcomes the No More BPA campaign led by Breast Cancer UK and whose call is backed by NCT, formerly the National Childbirth Trust, UNISON, the Women's Environmental Network, the Cancer Prevention and Education Society and CHEM Trust; and urges the Government to introduce regulations to end the use of BPA in baby bottles sold in the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 66 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
