The adverse effects of bisphenol-A on human health had move the FDA to make a decision on banning the use of the endocrine-disrupting chemical which is now found in almost all plastics, food packaging, water bottles, etc. A research found BPA in the urine of 93% of Americans, as eating canned soup increases urinary bisphenol-A levels by 1,200%. The FDA has finally announced its decision not to ban BPA as there isn't enough scientific evidence supporting its danger to human health as most of the experiments were performed using mice. "While evidence from some studies have raised questions as to whether BPA may be associated with a variety of health effects there remain serious questions about these studies, particularly as they relate to humans," the FDA said. More than 130 studies havd shown BPA to prompt hypersensitivity and depression in young girls, linked it to breast cancer and a myriad of health issues which has led to its ban in baby bottles in Canada, Turkey and the EU while companies like Toys "R" Us and Wal-Mart have discontinued its use in children items.
