Key Studies on BPA

Hundreds of laboratory studies have been conducted on BPA to better understand exposure and potential health effects. While the key studies summarized here are not intended to be exhaustive, these studies are significant because of their high utility for assessing the safety of BPA. Use the filters below to sort studies by topic focus or enter a specific search term.
