There is no scientific evidence that proves that bisphenol A (BPA) causes cancer, nor that it poses any risk to human health, at realistic levels of exposure. Claims that BPA is linked to cancer, birth defects, genetic effects, or infertility are not supported by robust research studies that have investigated this question. The results of related exploratory studies could not be reproduced by other scientific teams and they do not provide a consistent picture. Governmental assessments have confirmed that human exposure to BPA is extremely low. When exposed through diet, humans rapidly metabolise and eliminate BPA within a day.

In its recent comprehensive re-evaluation of the consumer safety of BPA published in January 2015, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) concluded that BPA poses no health risk to consumers of any age group (including unborn children, infants and adolescents) at current exposure levels. This evaluation comprises a thorough assessment of all available data, including studies on alleged carcinogenic effects of BPA.
