1930s Bisphenol A is first investigated in the search for synthetic estrogens.

Diethylstilbestrol, is determined to be more powerful than estrogen itself, so bisphenol A is not used as a synthetic estrogen.

Bisphenol A current uses are as a primary monomer in polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is also used as an antioxidant in plasticizers and as a polymerization inhibitor in PVC.

1998 Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction is established within the National Institutes of Health to assess the dangers of chemicals to human reproductive health.

As with most government programs to study the effects of industry on humans the bulk of the work is outsourced to industry sponsored "think tanks".

2007 More than 100 government studies confirmed the ability of BPA to mimic estrogen, cause genetic changes that lead to prostate cancer, decreased testosterone, low sperm counts and early female fertility.

A study of bisphenol A is done by Sciences International funded by BASF, Dow Chemical, DuPont, Chevron, ExxonMobil, 3-M, Union Carbide, the National Association of Manufactures as well as numerous other manufactures and industry groups.

Sciences International reviews the scientific literature, writes the basic report, "suggests" who should be a member of the scientific review panel, sets the parameters and the agenda under which the panel operates.

Bisphenol A has not been conclusively proven to have any detrimental effects on humans.

A dozen industry studies confirm.

Some polymers manufactured with bisphenol A are FDA-approved for use as food additives.

2008 Food and Drug Administration bisphenol A draft assessment of claims bisphenol A is safe, ignoring numerous independent and government-funded studies which show risk of harm including brain and prostate damage to developing infants, fetuses, and children, as well as increased risk of diabetes and heart disease.

FDA relies on two studies funded by an arm of the American Chemistry Council, a trade organization representing chemical manufacturers.

In test animals bisphenol A in concentrations lower than those set by the EPA have caused permanent changes to the genital tract, changes in breast tissue that predispose cells to hormones and carcinogens, 30% increase in prostate weight, signs of early puberty, decline in testicular testosterone, breast cells predisposed to cancer, prostate cells more sensitive to hormones and cancer, insulin résistance, decreased maternal behavior, damage to eggs and chromosomes, hyperactivity and reversal of normal sex difference in brain structure.

"Small amounts of estrogenic oil, bisphenol A for example, can permanently disrupt cellular control systems and predispose the prostate to disease in adulthood," said Barry G. Timms, a professor of biomedical sciences at the University of South Dakota who specializes in prostate biology.

"Exposure before birth to bisphenol A and other estrogen mimics at low doses explains why we have this increase in incidences of both breast and prostate cancers," said Patricia Hunt, professor School of Molecular Biosciences at Washington State University.


"The failure to report the toxic effects of bisphenol A in plastics follows a familiar pattern in which the industry involved adamantly denies any harm despite overwhelming animal studies to the contrary.

Many neurodegenerative diseases, from attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder to brain tumors, are dramatically rising in the Western culture, especially in children.

Many toxic substances are present in common foods, cleaners, clothes, personal items and other household products, consumers and especially parents would be well advised to become aware and avoid exposure." - Dennis Schumacher MD


"Reading the comments of Steve Hentges of the The Polycarbonate/BPA Global Group group gave me a profound feeling of déjà vu.

Steve Hentges' denigration of scientific evidence of the probable health dangers of bisphenol A echoed the comments, over years, of "scientists" from the tobacco industry denigrating scientific findings of the health risks of tobacco.

One suspects that all the evidence that is needed to prove the danger of BPA is in locked flies of the plastics industry." - Norman Decker MD




2009"Researchers focused on 634 male workers at four factories in China who were exposed to elevated levels of BPA.

They followed the men over five years and compared their sexual health with that of male workers in other Chinese factories where BPA was not present.

The men handling BPA were four times as likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction and seven times as likely to have difficulty with ejaculation, said De-Kun Li, a scientist at the Kaiser Foundation Research Institute, which conducted the study with funds from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health." - Lyndsey Layton, November 11, 2009

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
