Biography:

Mariah Blake, staff reporter with Mother Jones magazine. Her new investigation is “The Scary New Evidence on BPA-Free Plastics: And the Big Tobacco-Style Campaign to Bury It.”

Here is Mariah Blake’s article:

  • The Scary New Evidence on BPA-Free Plastics : a familiar ritual played out in Michael Green’s home: He’d slide a stainless steel sippy cup across the table to his two-year-old daughter, Juliette, and she’d howl for the pink plastic one. Often, Green gave in. But he had a nagging feeling. As an environmental-health advocate, he had fought to rid sippy cups and baby bottles of the common plastic additive bisphenol A (BPA), which mimics the hormone estrogen and has been linked to a long list of serious health problems. Juliette’s sippy cup was made from a new generation of BPA-free plastics, but Green, who runs the Oakland, California-based Center for Environmental Health, had come across research suggesting some of these contained synthetic estrogens, too.
