PlasticsEurope: Canadian Survey Examines BPA-Exposure

During April, the Canadian government released the results of the second Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) covering 2009-2011. The study also examined Bisphenol-A (BPA)-exposure of the Canadian population.

The results show that typical BPA intake, based on the urine samples in the study, is more than 1,000 times below safe intake level. The new Canadian biomonitoring results for BPA from urine samples are similar to those collected in the first survey of 2007-2009. They re-confirm the conclusions of other studies that BPA-exposure amongst the population is far below the levels set to be safe for a daily, life-long intake, which are defined at 25 micrograms/kg of bodyweight/day by the respective authorities in Canada, and at 50 micrograms/kg of bodyweight/day in the US and Europe.

The results therefore reconfirm Health Canada´s statement – and those of other global regulatory authorities – “that current dietary exposure to BPA through food packaging uses is not expected to pose a health risk to the general population”.
