FDA rejected the application of environmental protection organizations to ban bisphenol A in packaging bottles

the US Food and drug administration refused to ban bisphenol A as a plastic additive. The Bureau believes that the environmental protection organizations that applied for the ban failed to provide sufficient scientific evidence to prove that this chemical substance is harmful to human health

for decades, bisphenol A (BPA) has been widely used in the manufacturing of canned food and beverage packaging, milk bottles, water bottles and other daily necessities. Its main function is to strengthen plastics and serve as the anticorrosive inner membrane of tin cans. However, such coatings may also penetrate into food and beverages

the FDA pointed out that although the researchers kept reviewing the relevant evidence in terms of technology, no conclusion has been reached until today. At the end of this year, the Bureau will put forward the latest safety review report based on the in-depth research of institutions that need to show more capabilities of plastics and polymer composites

US environmental protection and consumer groups believe that bisphenol A can interfere with human hormones and cause health problems. The natural resources protection committee also pointed out that studies have shown that long-term exposure to bisphenol A is harmful to human beings, especially fetuses, infants and young children.

[analysis] discoverer: reasons for banning bisphenol A in baby bottles

the latest research shows that bisphenol a contained in baby plastic bottles has some uncertainties or side effects, or is harmful to development and endocrine. A. A. C. polymers of the European Commission pointed out that it had decided to prohibit the use of plastics containing the chemical bisphenol A in the production of baby bottles; The United States, Canada and other countries have also stopped using plastic bottles containing bisphenol A for infants. For China, which has always followed the food hygiene system of European and American countries, the European and American ban has not aroused corresponding resonance. Experts even think that the EU's measures are too advanced

[research] bisphenol A was found to be harmful to endocrine in animal experiments in the United States.

researchers at the University of Missouri, Columbia believe that the characteristics regulated by hormones may be particularly sensitive to endocrine interferons such as bisphenol A. This achievement was published in the new issue of the Journal of the National Academy of Sciences published on the 27th. The researchers said that it is not clear whether bisphenol A has a similar effect on human body, but it clearly needs to be concerned

[China] the Ministry of health and other six departments issued a document banning the use of bisphenol A in baby bottles

the Ministry of health and other six departments announced on the 30th that, in view of the sensitive population of infants and young children, bisphenol A is prohibited from being used in baby bottles in order to prevent the food safety risk of the southern snow disaster in 2008 and protect the health of infants and young children
