This news update that Prop. 65 listing for BPA is unjustifiable, is brought to you by ocregister.com.
Anti-chemical activists continue to advocate to ban Bisphenol A (more commonly known as BPA), despite both BPA’s value and scientific evidence. In its latest manifestation, advocates are using scare tactics to justify the designation of BPA as a dangerous chemical that is registered on California’s Proposition 65 list.
Under Prop. 65, enacted in 1986, the California Office of Environemental Health Hazard Assessment publishes “a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm.” But these health hazards do not apply to BPA.
A fundamental tenet of toxicology is that the dose makes the poison. Despite claims to the contrary, the research on BPA has not repealed this core principle.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration “continues to support the safety of BPA for the currently approved uses” based on its review of the scientific evidence surrounding BPA.
