baby bottles have been a huge concern for us as well, especially my wife who has done a lot of research after learning about the phthalate problem.


Bisphenol-A is, I think, as major a problem as the phthalates. It was the fairly recent work of one particular scientist--who discovered all of this by accident--who has brought the concern with both phthalates and bisphenol-A to awareness. (I heard her speak about this research just last March. She's an impressive person!)

It's not very heartening to know that today's nice and pretty and mercury-free bonded dental fillings are made possible by bisphenol-A! Yet another reason for meticulous dental hygiene! And also to avoid drinking really hot liquids, I'd think.
