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.
Thousands of laboratory studies have been conducted on BPA to better understand exposure and potential health effects. While the summaries of studies listed here 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.
theory claims that exposure to extremely low doses of certain substances could cause adverse health effects in humans, whereas no effects are seen at higher doses. >> more on Low-dose
During the chemical process of polymerisation, bisphenol A (BPA) reacts and becomes firmly bound into the structure. Like with any chemical process, unavoidable trace levels of BPA can occur in the final polymer. >> more on Migration
Certain natural and man-made substances can exhibit hormone-like properties. The natural ones of these substances are called "phyto-estrogens", the man-made ones are generally called "endocrine disruptors". >> more on Endocrine
