BPA is one of the most extensively studied chemicals with regard to safety following oral exposure. Several hundred studies in experimental animals have been published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature.
In addition, several epidemiology studies have reported apparent associations between BPA exposure and adverse health effects. None of these studies have demonstrated a causal link between BPA and adverse effects in humans.
FSANZ monitors all research on BPA and has prepared responses to some of these studies.
