Studies on Bisphenol A (BPA) and Health Effects. From Rochester JR, Bisphenol A and Human Health: A review of the literature, Reproductive Toxicology (2013 in press).
|TEDX releases a comprehensive review of the human health effects of bisphenol A
|A comprehensive review
conducted by TEDX’s Johanna Rochester, PhD, was recently accepted for publication in Reproductive Toxicology.
Associations were revealed between bisphenol A (BPA) exposure and adverse perinatal, childhood and adult health outcomes in humans, including reproductive and developmental effects, metabolic disease and other health outcomes, particularly behavioral effects in children.
These studies, over half of which were published in the last year, confirm that BPA can be harmful to humans at levels experienced by the general population, and well below levels considered safe by the USEPA.
