Support a Federal Ban on BPA

Support a ban on BPA in foodThe Breast Cancer Fund supports legislative efforts to ban the endocrine-disrupting chemical bisphenol A (BPA) from all food and beverage containers.

A bill introduced in the last Congress by Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., the Ban Poisonous Additives Act of 2011 (H.R. 432) expired at the close of the 112th Congress on January 3, 2013. But we anticipate reintroduction in the new Congress—and we need the support of your U.S. Representative to get this ban passed!

We need your help to reach out to every member of the U.S. House on this issue!

Ask Your Representative to Support a Ban on BPA in Food

Please personalize the email below before sending to your U.S. Representative. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Discuss why a BPA ban is important to you, as someone who has been touched by breast cancer.
  • Describe your efforts to avoid BPA in your daily life. A ban on BPA would protect everyone, even those who don't what BPA is or how to avoid it.
  • Congress must catch up with the states and countries that have already banned BPA. Denmark has banned it from all infant food packaging. Canada declared BPA to be a toxic substance. Legislation to regulate BPA-containing products has been introduced in 30 states and localities.
