Association of Urinary Bisphenol A Concentration With Medical Disorders and Laboratory Abnormalities in Adults
Interestingly, despite evidence over the years, the EPA’s stance on BPA is that it is safe at levels of normal exposure. You can even find a wonderful website highlighting the joy and benefit that BPA brings to our lives that is funded by the chemical companies that manufacture plastics containing BPA.
Despite this rosy picture, the research disagrees, including this current study in a very prestigious journal finding an increase in CVD, diabetes and elevated liver enzymes (most likely linked to the prediabetic state) in those with the highest exposure to BPA based on urine levels. Now does this sound safe, and safe enough to be used in products our pregnant moms, infants and toddlers are exposed to?
