    The chemicals in the plastic like BPA that leach into the liquids are a bigger danger.

    Is that a call for government regulation and banning I hear, freedom boy? Are you suggesting that the government should step in and take away my right to drink for the plastic container of my choosing?

    Stupid law. If a child old enough to read a warning label on a sippy cup is still using a sippy cup, they're already lost to society.

    How the fuck are you supposed to teach a kid to drink
    from a glass? We used them 30 years ago with our kids.
    Guess what happened? They grew up and their baby
    teeth fell out. OH NOES!!! Fucking waste of time and money
    even researching this yet alone legislating it.

    You're actually on to something there. That's why you're not supposed to heat bottles in the microwave. We tried to use glass if we had to use the microwave and we knew this 19 years ago. But still, that's all well and good but, how do you explain that heavily redacted source you posted that appears to have been edited to deceive the readers?

    They're not trying to ban them, just make them come with a little sticker warning about rotting their kids' teeth. I really don't see too much of a problem with it, but bottles are just as bad.

    Yes, but you probably taught them how to clean their teeth as well.
    Here's the issue, if the baby teeth are actively rotting, the decay will progress to the newly forming permanent teeth before they even show.
    The problem is real, but the solution isn't going to be a label on a cup. Somehow people have to get less stupid at a fundamental level.

    The FDA acknowledges the health concerns associated with BPA...

    So it's not like the government is involved is trying to Suppress the truth, maaaan! And they're stopping short of banning the use of BPA, which would lead to They're quashing my liberties and freedoms, maaaan!

    Tough spot for the conspiraloons... damned if they do, damned if they don't... tinfoil wrapped heads aspolde.

    Totally agree it's not a "final solution," but it's just a fucking label. Luckily we learned early on about stuff like this with our kid. If your kid absolutely has to go to bed with a little help, give them a pacifier or a bottle of water, or at least heavily diluted juice. I saw first hand from friends that had rotted their kid's teeth letting them go to bed with juice in their bottles.

    There's also other chemicals in plastics that aren't too good for you. But smelling a nuked plastic container should be your first hint that it can't be good for you so common sense should kick in.

    When I posted this I had no idea there would actually be debate about the issue.

    Does Kirk posting tinfoil-hat gibberish actually count as "Debate?"

    My problem is with the time and money that gets wasted with shit like this.
    I didn't need anyone to tell me how to raise my kids and especially not the government.

    I've said it all should be legal even aspartame but you should have to be truthful about the negative side effects of your product and let the consumer choose if its a risk they want to take. Years from now people will no longer be able to ignore the negative side affects of aspartame and the makers will be sued for billions.... if its still legal to sue them. A lot of these companies have so much influence in government that they somehow get immunity from being sued (Haliburton).
