New scientific study highlights non-monotonic dose-response curves and low-dose effects of bisphenol A

A new scientific study, undertaken as part of the US CLARITY-BPA project, developed a quantitative assessment of the effects of bisphenol A (BPA) exposure on mammary gland development and found a consistent pattern of non-monotonic dose response relationships [2] on a set of over 90 measurements. This demonstrates a causal relationship between exposure to BPA and the health effects observed.
