Ustream Preparation - Remember the Tree Octopus.......

In preparation for the Ustream discussion on water bottles (by St. Raphael's gr. 6 class) on Wednesday please review the link to the current Health Canada page about bottled water.  
http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/securit/facts-faits/faqs_bottle_water-eau_embouteillee-eng.php
  
Please pay particular attention to the scientific research on  bisphenol A (BPA), which is the subject of ongoing studies and is not present in the small water bottles that are used every day by so many people.  
See the link re. BPA from the Office of Science and Society of McGill University:

http://blogs.mcgill.ca/oss/2013/06/24/dont-blame-the-water-bottle/

"In this article, Dr. Joe Schwartz helps to clear up the fog surrounding BPA. Dr. Schwartz notably points out that while science does not support fears in the popular press about BPA in everyday water bottles, he does believe that plastic water bottles should be “shunned” for other reasons."

It is a glitch and everytime Mrs. O'Hara puts a link on the blog, it goes to her email. Just copy and paste the link in the link bar thing at the top of the page to get to the right site. Weird how that has been happening lately...
