The FDA’s Science Board put the panel together to look over the report the FDA put together no BPA safety.

BPA is found in baby bottles, infant formula containers, aluminum can linings, etc.

Experts slammed the FDA for ignoring what they called valuable studies.

These studies revealed the true dangers of BPA, which include many risks of diseases.

Studies have linked BPA exposure to diabetes, obesity, heart disease, autism, among other things such as developmental problems.

The expert panel has made it clear that the FDA may have been very wrong in their ruling, and wants the recommendation on a safe BPA exposure level to be cut by a factor of at least 10.
