Unveiling the Impact of BPA on Health: A Silent Threat

November 13, 20231 min read

Bisphenol A (BPA), a compound used to maintain plastic flexibility, has become a silent threat to health. In 2008, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) highlighted a study by the Peninsula Medical School in Exeter, revealing that elevated urinary BPA levels were linked to diabetes in adults. Subsequent research in 2012, published in Circulation and JAMA, associated increased BPA levels with heart disease in men and women, as well as obesity in children and adolescents.

What's particularly alarming is that the levels of urinary BPA linked to these health risks are so low that they wouldn't have been detectable two decades ago due to technological limitations.

Belonging to the family of endocrine disruptors, BPA interferes with the body's hormonal messaging system. By binding to cell receptors, it displaces natural hormones, sending altered messages to cells and significantly impacting health even with minimal exposure.

Despite mounting evidence, influential lobbying groups like the American Chemistry Council (ACC) resisted the ban on BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups for years. Only when consumer confidence in other chemicals became a concern did the ACC reluctantly relent. This serves as a stark reminder that perceptions can change, especially when financial interests are at stake.
