Exposure to BPA has been measured in more than 100 independent studies conducted worldwide.
What these studies consistently show is that total exposure to BPA from all sources is hundreds to thousands of times lower than safe intake limits set by government agencies in the U.S. and Canada.
What happens when we are exposed to BPA? From other research, we know that BPA is quickly metabolized and eliminated from the body after exposure. It doesn’t accumulate in the body. And based on the way BPA is processed in the body, it’s unlikely to cause any health effects.
On its website, FDA asks the questions, “Is BPA safe?” and they provide a very simple answer. They say, “Yes, BPA is safe.”
