BPA Is Not Dangerous, Says German Study

The BPA debate continues
Smartbrief is reporting that a wide-ranging German study clears BPA from "noteworthy" health risks.  The notes come from the American Chemistry Council sponsored newsletter.

Some 200 studies—almost all small-scale “explorative” studies on rats—have suggested that BPA might trigger biological activity such as possible neurological or endocrinological effects.  Thus, BPA is often called a "possible endocrine disruptor."

The Smartbrief newsletter quoted an article by The American, an industry journal, who called the German BPA study "a triumph for sound science."  Such findings are a blunt rebuttal to advocacy groups that urge tougher regulations on BPA and phthalates, said Jon Entine, an adjunct fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
