  1. BPA Exposure Too Low to Cause ProblemsA controversial component of plastic bottles and canned food linings that have helped make the world’s food supply safer has recently come under attack: bisphenol A. Widely known as BPA, it has the potential to mimic the sex hormone estrogen if blood and tissue levels are high enough. Now, an analysis of almost 150 BPA exposure studies shows that in the general population, people’s exposure may be many times too low for BPA to effectively mimic estrogen in the human body.The analysis, presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual meeting by toxicologist Justin Teeguarden of the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, shows that BPA in the blood of the general population is many times lower than blood levels that consistently cause toxicity in animals. The result suggests that animal studies might not reflect the human BPA experience appropriately.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2013/02/bpa-exposure-too-low-cause-problems

      More information about BPA. It is true that anim studies don’t exactly reflect the effect in humans, but I still stand...

      BPA exposure scares the shit out of me! Especially since researchers showed its effects magnify across generations....

      so? and the point of this study is to what? justify the use of bpa STILL? good fucking job assholes.
