Le Bisphénol A, une approche difficile, quelques éléments de compréhension

Abstract : Bisphenol A (BPA) is a ubiquitous disruptor. It has been shown, that after exposure during gestation, BPA can induce several chronic diseases (cancer, reproductive troubles, behavioral troubles, diabetes and obesity). The aim of the study was to analyze whether eviction from BPA sources in food could diminish population exposure. 48 volunteers have given urinary samples before and after a one week eviction. The population impregnation levels are significantly high, as 87.5 % of the studied population, which corroborates other biomonitoring surveys. Contrary to all expectations, such a decrease following food withdrawal has not been systematically achieved. Several hypotheses have been cited to account for this result ant to more specifically account for the numerous other possible sources of poisoning. It is therefore essential that BPA levels should be clearly indicated on all products containing the substance with an aim to identifying the best way of securing withdrawal for the population, pending enforcement of October 12, 2011 law banning BPA in plastic food packagings.
