Bisphenol A (BPA) is generally considered unsafe to be used in plastic products. I've read some claims from several blogs online that the alternatives for BPA are just as harmful or sometimes even worse.

An example: https://goop.com/wellness/food-planet/bpa-is-still-in-food-packaging-and-the-replacements-may-be-just-as-bad/

What does the science say about BPA replacements and alternatives?

    1) While BPA is certainly controversial, your claim that it is "generally considered unsafe" is not justifiable. Please add a reference to support it, or tone it down. – Oddthinking Jan 14 at 19:15
  • 2) At the moment, the question is so vague and wishy-washy, it seems impossible to answer. "Harmful for health" is vague. How would you prove it wasn't? "BPA alternatives" is vague. How can we give an answer when we don't know what is in the set? I suspect this question is really about Bisphenol S (BPS). Why not find a specific claim of the particular danger of BPS, and we can respond to that? – Oddthinking Jan 14 at 19:20
