Scientific America recently published the following information about BPA:
“In recent years dozens of scientists around the globe have linked BPA to myriad health effects in rodents, mammary and prostate cancer, genital defects in males, early onset of puberty in females, obesity, and even behavior problems such as ADHD. Also reduced sperm count and sexual function in human males.
The weight of evidence keeps growing. A study presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies Annual meeting linked BPA exposure among pregnant mothers to heightened risk of childhood asthma in babies.
