Europe plans to implement new restrictions on BPA

after the long-awaited review of bisphenol a health research, the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) proposed to adjust the screw height to reduce the daily tolerable intake (TDI) of bisphenol A (BPA)

bisphenol A is used to produce polycarbonate and is the subject of hundreds of studies, some of which have shown that this ingredient can have adverse health effects

efsa said in a statement released on January 17: EFSA reviewed more than 450 studies on the potential health hazards of bisphenol A and found that it may have adverse effects on the liver and kidney, and the adverse effects on the breast may also be related to bisphenol A exposure. Therefore, it is recommended to reduce the current daily tolerable intake in recent years

the daily tolerable intake of bisphenol A is currently 50 g/kgbw/day (i.e. 0.05mg/kg/bw/day), while EFSA now proposes to reduce it to 5 g/kgbw/day (0.005mg/kg/bw/day)

the daily tolerable intake set by EFSA is temporary. This is because there is still uncertainty and we have to wait for the research results of the National Toxicology Program of the United States

and it does not coincide with the main needle. However, EFSA said that bisphenol A has a low health risk for all populations, including fetuses, infants, adolescents and adults, because the exposure level is very low. EFSA said that the estimated maximum number of oral and non oral bisphenol A exposure is times lower than the proposed daily tolerable intake, which varies according to age group. In the whole age population, oral exposure is more than 5 times lower than the proposed daily tolerable intake

efsa is soliciting public opinions, and stakeholders and interested parties are invited to comment on the document within the specified tolerance. The public can submit comments through EFSA's website, and the deadline is March 13
