NEWS FLASH: BPA has also now been linked to heart disease and possibly diabetes and liver dysfunction.  One recent study shows that those with Bisphenol-A tissue levels in the top 25% were twice as likely to suffer from heart disease.  This, by the way, was the second study to come up with this finding.
Even more frightening is what may be happening to our kids. Our young children, particulary boys, were already under siege from the effeminization of Phthalates used in plastic. Time Magazine recently covered how Bisphenol-A is likely contributing to the same issue and actually modifying the brain.  BPA consumption has also been linked to lower birth weights in expectant mothers.  There is also strong evidence that BPA is a carcinogen and reduces fertility in males by modifying sperm counts and causing other nasty reproductive issues. 
WARNING: Plastics that are "BPA Free" are safe, right? Wrong! One recent study noted that even very minute amounts in the nano or picomole range have been shown to cause health problems, especially to young children. The authors then went on to test a variety of BPA Free products and found that almost all had estrogens and some even showed more powerful estrogenic behavior than standard BPA plastics. 
WARNING #2: Dangerous residue levels of Bisphenol-A has also now been found in an abundance of paper products. This includes just about every paper product imaginable including "napkins, toilet paper, tickets, food wrappers, newspapers, and printer paper."  These levels are much higher than even those found in canned goods and can be absorbed through the skin. Receipts are particular risky.
Again, avoid plastics and cans, especially in cooking and food preparation, until technology finds and implements some reasonable alternatives.
The FDA finally issued a "needs more study" stance regarding BPA in mid January 2010. Yes, this is yet another lesson that the FDA is not going to protect youI and your family: there are now dozens of studies around the globe showing the negative effects of Bisphenol-A, including many at dosages we humans ingest and yet they still are taking a "let's all think about this some more" stance.
Well, the only good thing the FDA had to say was issue some guidelines for those who wish to try to protect themselves. Here is a listing:
1) Throw away scratched plastics.
2) Do not put hot liquids into plastics.
3) Do not heat plastics, especially in the microwave.
In other words, I'd break out the stainless steel - not aluminum! - and glass and throw the rest out.
