PlasticsEurope: EPA Study on Bisphenol A

In a comprehensive peer-reviewed study on Bisphenol A (BPA) funded and conducted by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), researchers exposed female rodents to both BPA and ethinyl estradiol (EE2) in utero in a wide range of doses. The study finds that low-dose exposures to BPA showed no effects on the range of reproductive functions and behavioral activities measured. The results have been published online in the journal Toxicological Sciences.

The question of reproductive and behavioral effects had been identified as an area of scientific interest needing further research in the EU Risk Assessment on BPA and in a 2008 report on BPA from the US National Toxicology Program. The results of this new EPA-funded, well-conducted study is a significant development in better understanding the safety of BPA. The study adds to the existing amount of evidence that led regulatory agencies from around the world conclude that science supports the safety of BPA for people of all ages in its current uses. “Sound scientific review must continue to be the foundation of regulatory assessments and political decisions”, said Jasmin Bird, PC/BPA-group of PlasticsEurope, Association of Plastics Manufacturers in Europe, Brussels, Belgium.
