There is no research that shows women’s exposure to BPA causes miscarriage.  A recent flurry of media stories has significantly exaggerated the findings of one small-scale study of 114 women that reported a limited “statistical association” between BPA and risk of miscarriage.  The study cannot establish – and does not report – any cause-and-effect finding between BPA and miscarriage.

The particular study by Dr. Ruth Lathi of Stanford University has not been peer-reviewed or published in the scientific literature and has only been presented at a conference – meaning that other scientists cannot fully review the data. This small-scale study has not been replicated with other studies and comprehensive multi-generation studies on laboratory animals have found that BPA has no effect on reproduction at any dose remotely close typical human exposure levels.
