Risky Sips: BPA in Your Bottle
Division:Life Sciences / None
City:Saskatoon, SK
School:Walter Murray Collegiate
Abstract:To investigate the issue of bisphenol A (BPA) in plastic bottles, different temperatures of water were poured into polycarbonate bottles. The possible BPA was extracted and analyzed. Overall, warmer water temperatures cause more BPA leaching. The levels of BPA found were far below the allowable daily intake levels set by various organizations. This experiment was conducted with Dr. John Giesy and Dr. Hong Chang.
