I love science.

I happened upon an assertion that BPS is worse than BPA. I honestly can’t explain why anyone would care. EPA has caused far more harm than anything related to plastics, and EPA is getting worse, metastasizing to corrupt and deteriorate all that is good in America.

First, I have difficulty finding any information on BPS. I cannot tell that it has been substituted for BPA in plastic products. Bisphenol A is a common component of many plastics. As well as I can tell from a few minutes of internet search, Bisphenol S is only used in some epoxy resins. Epoxy resins are uncommon in most plastic products.

As to BPA, well, here is an article mentioning in passing while talking about chemistry in general, and Chemist Dr. Joe Schwarcz, http://www.skeptic.com/eskeptic/13-02-27/ Frankly, the concerns about BPA are exceptionally over hyped.

It astonishes me how the media will hype news of doom and gloom. When study after study (go do your own research–you won’t believe mine anyway) finds BPA to be inconsequential, the hype goes on, drumming on a few factoids and other studies that suggest maybe.

The climate change scare is the same. We can all look around and see it is not getting warmer. It is easy to review history and geology and see it has been warmer, much warmer, in the past. Yet, the scare continues, and people like me are likened to holocaust-deniers.

When it comes to most of the “chemicals” around us that are supposed to be so dangerous, I can only wonder why our life expectancy and general health continue to improve.

If everything is so bad for us, why do we keep living longer?

We Americans have so many problems because we have no real problems. (This applies to most of the world today, especially the rest of the Western world.)

The biggest threat to the well-being of the average person is government regulation. EPA is the most dangerous thing on earth. We will be better off to abolish it.
