Here’s some good news for a change: BPA can no longer be included in sippy cups and baby bottles in the US! From sister site Eat Drink Better:

BPA has been banned in the EU for some time, but here in the U.S. the endocrine disruptor is still allowed in all sorts of products like plastic food containers and cansThe BPA ban only applies to children’s products here in the U.S., and it’s receiving mixed reactions from advocacy groups.
