The plasticizer you are referring to (DEHP) is widely used in all sorts of other products - colors, cosmetic products and pesticides - and very dangerous. In Europe governments are banning (or planning to ban)DEHP in Baby Products. But that's not enough. DEHP is the most widely used phthalate in plastic - everything that is soft, flexible plastic might have DEHP in it - it was found in bottled water and soda. It is transmitted through breastmilk.
I don't either care about the Tour de France or Alberto Cantador I'm just saying that the same level of phthalate might be detected in you or me (after drinking soda and using some skin care products) just that nobody tested our blood for chemicals. just sayin'.
