As reported by the non-governmental organization The International Chemical Secretariat (ChemSec) on February 6, 2014, 5 Swedish scientists criticized the Swedish National Food Agency’s (NFA) safety statement regarding bisphenol A (BPA) in an article published in the daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter. On January 24, 2014 the NFA published a press release stating that BPA is not harmful to health at human exposure levels found in adults, children and fetuses. In their article, the Swedish scientists Åke Bergman, Anna Beronius, Carl-Gustaf Bornehag, Bo A. Jönsson and Christina Rudén point out that the NFA bases its conclusions on an individual study measuring BPA levels in blood. According to them, the conclusion that BPA is not harmful to public health lacks scientific grounding.
