Methods and materials
To confirm the effects of BPA on the body, research needs to be conducted. The best way
to test the presence of BPA in the body is to use urine tests. Over the years, various studies have
discovered some ways that can be used to determine the levels of BPA in the human body. The
following is a description of the methods and materials that were used to confirm the presence
and effects of BPA in the human system. For the purposes of this test, the dependent variable in
the concentration of BPA in urine while the independent variables are drinking cold water from a
plastic container, drinking warm water from a plastic container and drinking warm water from a
glass. The controlled variable is the regulation of the temperature of water.
Participants: the study was composed of nine (9) males and eleven (11) females. To
assess the effects and concentrations of BPA among the various age groups, the research used
men ranging from 44 years on the upper scale and 12 years on the lower level. On the other
hand, the eldest female in the group aged 46 years while the youngest was 11 years old. In the
process of recruiting the participants, there were some ethical standards that were considered.
