Survey of bisphenol a in Russian foods

The Chapaevsk Medical Association tested 21 food samples from three Russian cities for levels of BPA, determining that 81% of the samples were contaminated. Canned infant food was found to have some of the highest levels of contamination. Results were shared at several seminars and workshops with physicians, chemists, government officials, industry leaders, and other NGOs. Among other recommendations, CMA suggests continued bio-monitoring in humans (particularly infants) for BPA levels, implementing epidemiological impact studies in the general public, and starting a public information and awareness campaign about the dangers of BPA in foods and consumer products.
