Unlikely cause of food intolerance

A study from the FASEB Journal has just shown that perinatal exposure to low doses of BPA, which is considered to be risk-free in humans, could increase the risk of developing food intolerance in adulthood.

A sizable portion of the global population suffer from food intolerance. Aside from diet, an environmental origin for these adverse food reactions is strongly suspected.

These findings support the decision made by the French authorities to ban the use of BPA in any amount in containers used for infant foods as early as 2013, and in all food packaging as from 2015.
