Experts Downplay Toxic Effects from Controversial Food Packet Chemical

There has been so much buzz about the presence of bisphenol A (BPA) in food packaging and baby's bottles but a recent research has indicated that there might not be any serious toxic effects on humans.

Experts have claimed that range of health concerns mentioned including diabetes and obesity could have been instigated by the food itself instead of the plastic wrapping. The results were based on a study over 30,000 people who didn’t show any major impact from the toxic chemical.

It’s being from the 1960s that BPA has been used in making hard plastics, but for the past few years, it has come under scanner for causing harm to human health.

It was then in 2012, the US Food and Drug Administration imposed ban on BPA use in making baby bottles. Apparently, Richard Sharpe, of the Medical Research Council's Centre for Reproductive Health at the University of Edinburgh, claimed: “If this association was due to cause and effect, it would mean that bisphenol A was incredibly potent and toxic, and this does not agree with published studies. This possibility therefore seems illogical”, while speaking at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Boston.

It would be worth seeing if any conclusive result can be drawn from the fresh results revealed.
