"The highest estimates for aggregated exposure to BPA from both dietary and non-dietary sources are 3 to 5 times lower than the TDI, depending on the age group."
EFSA fact sheet, January 2015
"Levels of BPA in the human body are very low, indicating that BPA is not accumulated in the body and is rapidly eliminated."
World Health Organization (WHO), November 2010

Scientific information on Bisphenol-A (BPA)

Good and reliable science depends on accepted study design, laboratory quality practices, robust statistics and data transparency resulting in reproducibility of findings and consistency of observations by other teams of scientists.

"Understanding science" is also well explained by EFSA.

Thousands of laboratory studies have been conducted on BPA to better understand exposure and potential health effects. While the summaries of studies are by no means intended to be exhaustive, these studies have been included as they are considered significant because of their scope, findings or that have generated significant public interest.
