From Nicholas Kristof in the New York Times. He also wrote this on his facebook page:
There’s a class of chemicals that is linked to everything from cancer to shrinkiing penises. Big Chem is blocking regulation of these chemicals, such as BPA, which are even in food packaging. Please help spread the word!
When I posted this column, a FB follower named @Scribbler_Jones made an important analogy. Everybody now acknowledges that DES is a dangerous, cancer-causing endocrine disruptor. But the link was published in 1971, and it took until 2000 to ban DES for humans. Yup, 29 years of delay. Likewise, we now have growing evidence of links to disease (and, yes, to small penises!) but there still isn’t serious regulatory action. That’s why I appreciate you sharing the column and spreading the word.
