+ - Exposed: Bisphenol-A Astroturf Conspiracy->

Submitted by

Philip K Dickhead writes ""Frustrated at media portrayals of bisphenol A as a dangerous chemical, food-packaging executives and lobbyists for the chemical makers met this week at an exclusive Washington, D.C., club where they hammered out a strategy, including showcasing a pregnant woman to talk about the chemical's benefits." The scoop is at Effect Measure at Scienceblogs.com, with a great pointer from "Jimmy" over on BoingBoing.net: "Someone leaked the minutes for a meeting of food-packaging executives and chemical industry lobbyists seeking to find ways to keep consumers buying goods laced with bisphenol-A. Attending companies included Coca-Cola, Del Monte, Alcoa and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA).""
