This study demonstrates once again that the average American’s exposure to BPA remains extraordinarily low. Results indicate that median daily intake of BPA is 34 nanograms per kilogram of body weight for the overall population. Additionally, while it was found that children are exposed to slightly higher levels of BPA than adults, these levels are still almost 1,000 times below recommended safe exposure limits.
