A coalition of health and ecological support groups tried 192 cans randomly from numerous retailers in Canada and over 19 American states and found that almost 70 percent contained the toxic additive Bisphenol-A (BPA).
Although there are some companies that advertise "BPA-free" products, these items may actually not be safer. Scientists have found that a substitute to BPA, called BPS (Bisphenol S) may actually speed up embryonic development and disrupt the reproductive system.
New findings published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology reveal that exposure to certain substances commonly found in food packaging can increase the risk of miscarriage.
New findings published in the Journal of Environmental Sciences reveals that researchers may have effectively found a new way to test the effects of pollutants on human cells through the investigation of Bisphenol A (BPA).
Our water may be contaminated by hormone-disrupting pollutants. Scientists have discovered that harmful concentrations of Bisphenol-A (BPA) may have been deposited directly into rivers and streams by municipal or industrial wastewater.
Bisphenol A (BPA) may just impact the animals in our environment. Scientists have discovered this chemical can disrupt sexual function in turtles, which could be a warning for environmental health.
There's may actually be an association between bisphenol-A (BPA) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children. Scientists have found that BPS is not metabolized well in children with ASD.
Bisphenol A, known as BPA, is produced in massive quantities to use in consumer products. Now, scientists have discovered that both BPA and BPS (bisphenol S) may cause alterations in brain development that leads to hyperactivity.
