Science for Senators

Real Clear Science published my piece today challenging absurd claims by environmental activists claiming that chemicals such as BPA are responsible for surging medical costs. The assertions were touted in an article by Huffington Post’s Environment columnist, Lynne Peeples. I’m proud that the influential and widely read Real Clear Science published my article debuking the claims. But I’ll admit, I submitted the piece somewhere else first. The Huffington Post, which has published many of my columns, declined to publish this one. I don’t know why.

I do know that anti-chemical activists want the government to step in and protect the public from obesity they say is caused by BPA. Their champion is California Senator Dianne Feinstein who tweeted yesterday about the phony evidence that BPA is an obesogen.

In the Senator’s defense, she probably reads Huffington Post and doesn’t have time for Real Clear Science. In retrospect, maybe I should have titled the article, “Science for Senators.” Especially if you live in California, please help Senator Feinstein understand some pretty basic scientific principles, such as the difference between association and causation. You can begin by sending her my piece. Who knows, maybe she’ll become a fan of Real Clear Science
