On March 30, 2011, Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) released this study, which demonstrates once again that typical exposure to BPA remains very low. In this study of 5 families, the 20 participants participated in a “fresh foods” dietary intervention. Levels of BPA metabolites in participants’ urine were measured prior to, during and after the dietary interventions. All the measurements confirmed that the BPA levels were more than 1,000 times below the government-established safe intake level.
