The federal effort to reconcile BPA science<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8xODU2NTc4Ni9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYyODE3ODYwNH0.UQWK96G1PR2wBjRMTrXST_M8qxix04H-8M50CfBXa8Q/img.jpg?width=980" id="f67fc" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="43e054e5320b640d614e88b127f7896e" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p>The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, the U.S. National Toxicology Program, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration launched an effort to reconcile the science on BPA's health impact in 2012. Results of this effort, known as "<a href="https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/results/areas/bpa/index.html" target="_blank">CLARITY-BPA</a>," are just coming into focus. </p><p>On Thursday, Sept. 13, the three federal agencies will hold a webinar to discuss preliminary findings.

Resumption of normal life in the United States under a herd immunity approach would result in an enormous death toll by all estimates.
Researchers find people's exposure to PFAS and certain flame retardants could be significantly reduced by opting for healthier building materials and furniture.
Fish exposed to harmful contaminants can pass on health issues such as reproductive problems to future generations that had no direct exposure.
An expanding wood pellet market in the Southeast has fallen short of climate and job goals—instead bringing air pollution, noise and reduced biodiversity in majority Black communities.
