Bisphenol A, a chemical found in plastic bottles and food packaging,  has minimal adverse effects on health, according to new FDA research. Data show “few significant effects of BPA treatment” on rats in a federal study of chronic toxicity, according to a draft report released Feb. 23 by the Food and Drug Administration. Global researchers and regulators have focused on the chemical in recent years because many consumer products containing bisphenol A come into contact with food.

It’s been shown that the primary route of human exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) is through the diet.   One source of BPA in the diet is the protective coating inside many food and beverage cans, which helps to protect the safety and integrity of the product.  Epoxy resin-based coatings have been used for decades because they excel in this application.  Since epoxy resins are made from BPA, trace amounts of residual BPA can leach from the coatings into the food or beverage that we then ingest.

recent analysis of published data on human exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) revealed more than 140 studies with over 85,000 data points from 30 countries. Taken together the data show that exposure to BPA around the world is hundreds to thousands of times below the science-based safe intake limits set by government bodies.

Everyone has heard about bisphenol A (BPA). It’s primarily used as a raw material to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins, both of which are high performance materials used in many consumer products that help to make our lives better and safer. But that’s probably not what you’ve heard.

A common definition of the word dust refers to fine, dry particles of matter. From dust storms on earth to cosmic dust, just about everywhere that any form of matter is present, dust will also be present. That includes the ubiquitous household dust that seems to magically appear in our homes on every surface and in the form of dust bunnies under furniture.
