Please be fair and do some thorough reporting on issues regarding the use of chemicals in Maine. You report on comments by mothers, doctors, activists and environmentalists but seldom scientists.

This paper has implied that chemicals like bisphenol-A are toxic but have not been banned in Maine because of chemical lobbyists in the LePage administration or the bureaucratic Food and Drug Administration being too slow to make a decision.

Why didn’t you report that the European Food Safety Authority, an agency of the European Union, has reaffirmed the safety of BPA based upon scientific studies?

I find it amazing that the LePage administration apparently has such influence in Europe. Please be fair and consider good science in your reporting.
