Bisphenol A (BPA) is one of the most studied and understood chemicals. Despite its extensive track record of safety, junk science-fueled anti-chemical activists have forced consumer product manufacturers to abandon BPA for much less well-studied substitutes (i.e,. “BPA-Free”). Chemist Steve Hentges takes a look at the implications at Science 2.0.

Markey believes that BPA is an endocrine disrupter in spite of many studies that show no toxicity.
For quite a few years, one of the most popular chemicals for scientific inquiry has been bisphenol A (BPA). Scientists around the world have been conducting a diverse array of studies aimed at understanding whether BPA poses a risk to human health.
Based on the weight of evidence from these many studies, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently answered the question “Is BPA safe?” with a simple and unambiguous answer – “Yes.” Read more…

Leading Environmental Group Scientist Praises FDA’s Ground-Breaking Research On BPA: A Tipping Point In The Controversy?
“So it came as something of a shock to the panel and the audience when, after the presentation by the FDA’s Daniel Doerge, Ruthann Rudel, an expert on endocrine disruption at the Silent Spring Institute (named after the Rachel Carson book which ignited the environmental movement) praised his research. ‘I actually just want to thank you for the work that you’ve done, because I’ve found your studies to be some of the most clarifying and helpful pieces of information in making my way through the bisphenol A woods,’ said Rudel.” Continue reading
New driver’s licenses in New York will be made of polycarbonate — often (always?) made with bisphenol A (BPA). Since the enviros have attacked receipts containing BPA, will they go after the new licenses as well? Continue reading
Aside from the improper use of statistical analysis and lack of biological plausibility, widespread BPA use predates the supposed “epidemic” of asthma by decades. Continue reading
