  • Overexposed To Bisphenol F? Blame Mother Nature

    Science 2.0
    Whether you realize it or not, there’s a good chance that you are being exposed to bisphenol F (BPF). There’s even a fair chance that you are highly exposed. If so, should you be concerned and what should you do about it?
  • Voodoo Epidemiology: Now BPS Is Causing Obesity. Will The Public Fall For This Hype Again?

    Science 2.0
    Bisphenol S (BPS) and bisphenol F (BPF) are chemicals used in the lining of aluminum-canned food and drinks (to prevent spoilage). They were rolled out as a replacement for bisphenol A (BPA), a compound targeted by activists under claims it might statistically be an “endocrine-disrupting chemical.” Exhaustive studies later found overwhelming scientific evidence that was not so.

  • U.S. National Toxicology Program Releases Final Report on CLARITY Core Study, Again Confirms BPA Safety

    The U. S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) today released its final report on the CLARITY Core Study, a landmark study on the safety of bisphenol A (BPA). The results of the study, which is the final part of a multi-year in-depth research program, strongly support the safety of BPA. “The final report on the CLARITY Core Study strongly supports recent statements from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that BPA is safe at the very low levels to which people are typically exposed. The scope and magnitude of this study are unprecedented for BPA, and the results clearly show that BPA has very little potential to cause health effects, even when people are exposed to it throughout their lives,” said Steven G. Hentges, Ph.D., Polycarbonate/BPA Global Group of the American Chemistry Council (ACC).
  • New U.S. Government Research Strongly Supports BPA Safety

    The U.S. government today released its Draft Report with results from the largest study ever conducted on bisphenol A (BPA). The results of the study, which is the key part of a multi-year in-depth research program, strongly support the safety of BPA. “The results of the CLARITY Core study once again demonstrate that BPA is safe at the very low levels to which people are typically exposed. This study is the largest study ever conducted on BPA, and the results indicate that BPA has very little potential to cause health effects even when people are exposed to it throughout their lives,” said Steven G. Hentges, Ph.D., Polycarbonate/BPA Global Group of the American Chemistry Council (ACC).
