Japan Government Panel Endorses Decision to Further Delay Enforcement of Ban
on BHA The Government Panel endorsed in its committee meeting the government
decision to further delay enforcement of a ban on the use of
Butlyhydroxyanisol (BHA), a food additive. This is pending completion of an
international study into its possible carcinogenic effects.
The Health and Welfare Ministry had decided last August to ban the use of the
additive from February 1983 onward, after Nagoya Municipal University
researchers pointed to evidence that BHA caused cancer in tests with rats.
A conference of U.S., British and Canadian researchers convened soon afterward
was divided over the additive's possible carcinogenic properties.
When the experts failed to reach a final conclusion after six meetings,
however, the Ministry deferred implementation of the ban until after the Food
and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) discuss
the issue again next spring or until decisive experimental proof is obtained.
