BPA chemical levels in humans drastically underestimated, study finds

New research has come out about the harmful levels of BPA in the human body has been drastically underestimated in common items like Thermal receipt paper, plastics and canned goods.

Professor Patricia Hunt from Washington State University who was the co-author of the study who is a molecular biosciences professor, said she was “horrified” by the high levels her group found in the pregnant women.

Professor Hunt spoke about the regulatory decisions for this chemical, BPA, have been based in part on the idea that our exposure is so very, very low,” Hunt said. “And I just don’t think that’s true. Our data really challenged that assumption.”

We were lucky enough to talk to Professor Hunt about this and she was able to provide her results and paperwork so we could read and understand were the issues were in measuring the BPA levels in the human body.
