For more than a decade, federal government scientists have confirmed the safety of BPA with in-depth scientific studies in three key areas:

  • Monitor exposure levels in the US population.
  • Understand the metabolism and elimination of BPA from the human body.
  • Assess if BPA is likely to cause any health effects.

Reviewing the extensive government research presented here will help you to understand why FDA is confident to answer the key question: “Is BPA safe?” with a clear answer – “Yes.”
