BPA, which stands for Bisphenol A, is produced by a condensation reaction between phenol and propanone (acetone). It is a synthetic compound used in the manufacturing of plastics. BPA-based plastic is clear and tough, and is made into a variety of common consumer goods, such as water bottles, CDs, DVDs, and plastic packaging.
One of my favorite holidays of the year is Halloween. My friends and I are planning on going all-out this year, and have already begun putting together our costumes (even though it is only the middle of summer). We love to rock and roll all night, and party everyday, so we decided to dress up as the legendary rock group, KISS! Now, I already have plenty of wigs, spandex and studded black leather, but what I don’t have is makeup . . .
“Organic” by itself simply means “of, relating to, or arising in bodily organ” or “affecting the structure of the organism”1, however, when most of us see/ hear the word we may think food, healthier ecosystem, less or no chemicals, expensive, etc.
