An investigation questioning the safety of BPA-free plastics used in many common household products that also details the Big Tobacco-style campaign to cover up the facts. Nearly two decades after scientists discovered that BPA, a common plastic additive that mimics the hormone estrogen, is linked to serious health problems, Mother Jones reporter Mariah Blake investigates new evidence that suggests even plastics labeled "BPA-free" may expose us to similar effects. Despite these findings, US regulators continue to ignore the evidence and potentially dangerous plastics are still everywhere-from your baby's bottle to your toothbrush. Blake takes an inside look at the tactics used to keep plastics in our homes despite potential worrisome health effects
