A study run by the University of Exeter measuring BPA, a chemical found in many forms of packaging, has discovered that over 86% of the participants in their study had traces of the chemical in their bodies.

BPA is a chemical used widely in packaging including in plastic water bottles, till receipts and containers. The chemical is an endocrine-disrupting chemical with similarities to oestrogen.

The study went on to investigate whether it was possible to reduce the level of BPA in the participants system by following a diet designed to limit BPA exposure. It was found that labelling of BPA foods was inconsistent and the participants trying to follow the BPA free diet did not show lower levels of BPA in their bodies.
