On October 15, 2013 the American chemical industry association American Chemistry Council responded with a press release to a new study linking increased bisphenol A (BPA) exposure to an augmented risk of miscarriage (reported on by the FPF). The ACC points out that the epidemiological study cannot establish a causal link between BPA exposure and an increased risk of miscarriage and argues that serum BPA measurement are a weak measure of BPA exposure. Further, the ACC stresses that the study is not yet published in peer reviewed journal. The study by Louis and colleagues was presented at conjoint meeting of the International Federation of Fertility Societies and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S. on October 12-17, 2013.
