It is amazing how fast things change and yet stay the same. For example one-third of our legislators are new to the State House and yet some of the same old issues are still there. I speak of the matter of safe foods and food containers. BPA is still there. A recent study showed that persons who consume five bowls of canned soup per week excrete one thousand times the amount of bisphenol than persons who consume homemade soup.

So, to our new legislators — Eat more homemade soup and let us continue the process of cleaning up food containers.
