Plastics Chemical BPA Tied to Ovarian Cysts
Date:6/21/2010

ecutive director of the Polycarbonate/BPA Global Group at the American Chemistry Council pointed out that, "Recent reviews of the science have continued to support the safe use of BPA in food contact applications. In January, 2010, the FDA weighed in on BPA, noting that additional studies on BPA are underway. Principal deputy commissioner Joshua Sharfstein stated, 'If we thought it was unsafe, we would be taking strong regulatory action.'" He added that other global regulatory bodies, Health Canada, have recently completed scientific evaluations and found BPA safe in canned food products and beverages.
