Yep. You've definitely got that right. I will, however, be the first to defend your right to your own opinion.in8mom wrote:I realize my previous post might sound a little over the top. I just don't think it's something that should be ignored. That's just me and MY opinion.
Our other two posters remind me very much of the scaremongers of the EPA during my early adulthood after returning from the NAM in '68 (along with agent orange - who's effects were very efficiently documented - unfortunately after the fact) with their scaremongering over a certain Pesticide. The funny part is that ALL of the reports & studies were/are peppered with the same phrases that you two have conveniently quoted in your posts like:"Bottom line I don’t think it is worth a mass panic rush to the shop, but if you are in the market for a new set of bottles it does no harm to get BPA free bottles."
DDT: The Bald Eagle Lie
By Steven Milloy
FoxNews.com | Friday, July 07, 2006
Pennsylvania officials just announced success with their program to re-establish the state’s bald eagle population. But it’s a shame that such welcome news is being tainted by oft-repeated myths about the great bird’s near extinction.
In its July 4 article reporting that the number of bald eagle pairs in Pennsylvania had increased from 3 in 1983 to 100 for the first time in over a century, the Associated Press reached into its file of bald eagle folklore and reported, “DDT poisoned the birds, killing some adults and making the eggs of those that survived thin. The thin eggs dramatically reduced the chances of eaglets surviving to adulthood. DDT was banned in 1972. The next year, the Endangered Species Act passed and the bald eagles began their dramatic recovery.”
