Breast Cancer UK to re-launch ‘No more BPA’ campaign
In 2010, Breast Cancer UK (BCUK) ’No More BPA’ campaign helped to secure an EU wide ban on bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles, serving to protect babies from ingesting this endocrine disrupting chemical with their milk. However, BPA is still used in a wide range of products including tin cans and plastic tableware and is leaching into the food we consume on a daily basis. BPA mimics oestrogen and has been linked with an increased risk of breast cancer. Exposure to BPA has also been linked with other diseases such as prostate cancer, obesity and diabetes. In the next few weeks BCUK will therefore be re-launching their campaign calling for the ban to be extended to all food and drink materials.
If you would like to add your organisation’s support to BCUK’s campaign then please contact BCUK’s Campaign Manager, Lynn Ladbrook at firstname.lastname@example.org.
