California bans BPA in baby bottles and cups

BPA in baby bottles will be no more! At least not in California, after July 1, 2013. As the Greenspace blog is reporting this afternoon, Governor Jerry Brown has signed the Toxin-Free Infants and Toddlers Act, which bans the chemical bisphenol-A from baby bottles and toddlers' drinking cups. BPA has been linked to all sorts of nasty health problems, so this is good news all around.
