how dangerous is bpa and how to avoid exposure?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Robert Alexander
27 years experience Plastic Surgery
Ltd danger - unknown: Use of bpa & human exposure is so very low that it is impossible to determine extent or risk at this point in time. Studies completed are not conclusive enough to demand withdrawal. Studies show micro doses are metabolized and excreted from the body very quickly, limiting potential damage. Avoidance in packaging, etc. Is very difficult to control.
