Confused About BPA?Posted August 15, 2008 | Promotional Products
If you’ve been paying attention to media reports regarding bisphenol A (also known as BPA), you’re probably thoroughly confused about the whole thing by now. BPA is a plastic hardener often found in shatterproof bottles and is also used to seal canned food. Trace amounts of BPA can leach from products, and recent studies question the health risks that could be associated with BPA exposure. Just today, the FDA drafted a report that states these trace amounts are not dangerous to humans. Despite the FDA’s reassurances, many consumers and health groups still question the safety of products containing BPA.
