Exposure to Bisphenol-A (BPA) is an important topic. In particular, we need to know how much BPA we’re exposed to and if that’s a safe level or not. That concept is critical to understanding the safety of most anything we’re exposed to, whether intentionally or not.

For example, taking one aspirin may safely eliminate your headache, but taking a whole bottle of aspirin may eliminate your life. The difference is important.

Based on scientific evidence, government agencies, for example the Food and Drug Administration, establish safe intake limits for chemicals such as BPA. In the case of BPA, more than 100 independent studies have shown that real-life exposure to BPA is about a 1,000 times below the safe intake limit set by FDA.

Based on the science, we can be confident that BPA is safe and that consumer exposure to BPA is unlikely to pose a health risk to consumers of any age.
