ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study by the University of Rochester Medical Center which challenged common assumptions about the chemical bisphenol A (BPA). According to the study, high levels of BPA remain in the body of some people even after fasting for as long as 24 hours. It also found that BPA exposure may come from non-food sources. Particular focus is given to the controversy surrounding BPA, as well as the link between BPA urine concentration and the length of time a person had been fasting.
