According to an estimate in the EFSA draft opinion published on 25 July 2013, the average exposure to BPA resulting from feeding infants up to 3 months is 135 ng / kg bw / day ( nanogram per kilogram of body weight per day ). This value is 30 times lower than that mentioned in the previous estimate in 2006 (4000 ng / kg bw / day). Moreover, the same observation was made for adults, including women of childbearing age. Indeed , the estimate of 2013 (132 ng / kg bw / day) is approximately 11 times lower than in 2006 (1500 ng / kg bw / day) . Finally, the draft opinion of EFSA covers both dietary and non-dietary sources including thermal and environment sources (air, dust ... ).
