Yes, the FDA says it's "safe," but they also claim that Bisphenol A (BPA) is safe, even after the multiple scientific studies that have shown its dangerous properties. We cannot always rely on government agencies to determine the safety of our food products. And while studies have shown that styrene and benzene are also "naturally found" in some foods, there is a problem with those claims. Those studies on styrene and benzene in food were performed only within the past few decades, well after the two chemicals had been introduced into the environment as a result of industrial manufacturing. So who knows whether strawberries and coffee naturally had these chemicals in them or whether these chemicals have found their way into our foods because of industry?
