Study finds BPA Levels in Humans Dramatically Underestimated,
Washington State University, December 5, 2019.


"BPA can be found in a wide range of plastics, including food and drink containers, and animal studies have shown that it can interfere with the body's hormones. In particular, fetal exposure to BPA has been linked to problems with growth, metabolism, behavior, fertility and even greater cancer risk."

Environmental Estrogens Penetrate Placenta

"...the FDA has evaluated data from studies measuring BPA in human urine and determined that human exposure to the chemical is at very low, and therefore, safe levels."

New BPA Test
"Researchers have developed a more accurate method of measuring bisphenol A (BPA) levels in humans and found that exposure to the endocrine-disrupting chemical is far higher than previously assumed."

Major Under-Measurement
"...the measurements relied upon by regulatory agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are flawed, underestimating exposure levels by as much as 44 times."

No Precautionary Principal EVER in Operation…
Duh: We've not been, "careful," since the 1880s...
"This study raises serious concerns about whether we've been careful enough about the safety of this chemical."

How Found
"...developed a direct way of measuring BPA that more accurately accounts for BPA metabolites, the compounds that are created as the chemical passes through the human body."

Standard Measure
"The disparity between the two methods increased with more BPA exposure: the greater the exposure the more the previous method missed."

Whole Family of Mis-Measurements?
"BPA is still being measured indirectly through NHANES, and it's not the only endocrine-disrupting chemical being measured this way."

Many Potentially Under-Measured Dangerous Chemicals
Used in many, many human products
"...a category that includes environmental phenols such as parabens, benzophenone, triclosan found in some cosmetics and soaps, and phthalates found in many consumer products including toys, food packaging and personal care products."



We've Poisoned Ourselves

Some Questions

How did all these dangerous chemicals get into everything, everywhere, and everyone?

Exactly what physical, psychological, social and economic effects has this apparently vast poisoning, this vast experiment of exposing a huge percentage of the world's developing children to the effects of powerful endocrine disruptors from conception through adolescence?

We explore some of the potential answers to these questions through an examination of the research below.

Support Tahoe to Whitney

The Tahoe to Whitney Trail Guide and Magazine are walked, written, funded, and supported by my efforts, with the help of kindred spirits and my sister.

We offer valuable Trail Guide, Skills, Weather, News and Analysis.

My goal is to get you out to see your natural and social potential. Help me keep this unique resource accessible and expanding towards its potential. We've a lot of miles to cover ahead...

If you feel these efforts are valuable, I'm cordially inviting you to support them, here:



I am currently working towards publishing the completed guide between Tahoe & Yosemite as an e-book, while converting this "blog" to a fine magazine format. You will like the results! Help Tahoe to Whitney reach its potential!
