It Matter Who Pays For Scientific Studies

There is a chemical called BPA that is involved in the manufacturing of plastics. It leaches out of the products and enters the bodies of people who come in contact with it. It appears to have a very negative impact on the body.

Development Biologist Frederick von Saal of the University of Missouri examined 115 studies on BPA. 90% of the university and government studies traced some kind of negative health effect to BPA, while 100% of the corporate sponsored studies reported no problems at all. You could say this was a mere coincidence. I would say this raises the need to consider the source of research in evaluating it validity.
