Does BPA Cause Health Effects?
BPA is one the best tested substances in commerce. Though the media may report that Bisphenol-A (BPA) causes various health effects, extensive scientific study doesn’t support the validity that BPA causes health effects.
Leading health agencies around the world, for example the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Health Canada, Food Standards Australia New Zealand, and the European Food Safety Authority have all reviewed BPA, and they all agree that BPA does not pose a risk to human health to people of any age group.
Results from studies conducted by FDA scientists, including the largest study ever conducted on BPA, clearly demonstrate that BPA does not cause health effects at real-life consumer exposure levels.
On its website, FDA asks the question, “Is BPA safe?” They answer that question with a very simple, unambiguous answer. They say, “Yes, BPA is safe.”
