BPA Poses No Health Risk According to the EU


The chemical bisphenol A, or BPA was found to pose no health risk, according to a statement released by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) on Wednesday. Officials noted that exposure and toxicity levels of the chemical have not resulted in health risks to consumers of any age.


EFSA concludes that BPA poses no health risk to consumers because current exposure to the chemical is too low to cause harm,” the statement read.


New research on the chemical in recent years has promoted the EFSA to re-evaluate the risks posed by it.


BPA can oftentimes be found in plastic food containers, along with the lining of tin cans and even in thermal paper used for cash register receipts. Furthermore, officials also noted that humans can be exposed to BPA through their diet, in drinking water and by inhalation.


Previous research had speculated that BPA exposure increased the risk of adverse effects to neurodevelopment, cancer or infertility. However, ESFA officials now estimate that exposure to BPA was “considerably under” the “tolerable daily intake,” than previously thought.
