RESEARCHERS FIND EVIDENCE OF LINK BETWEEN COMMONLY USED CEMICAL COMPOUND AND BREAST CANCER

May 31, 2005 | www.Newsinferno.com

BPA (bisphenol-A), is and estrogen-like chemical compound that is widely used (3 million tons annually) in the production of plastic food containers, the resins that line food cans, and dental sealants. Research has shown that that BPA leaches out of products and may be absorbed into the body at low concentrations and animal studies have revealed that the chemical has potential health risks.

A new animal study, however, suggests that even at extremely low concentrations, BPA exposure in the womb may be harmful. Moreover, the study uncovered evidence that BPA may be a breast cancer risk factor because of its potential effect on the development of vulnerable and sensitive breast tissue.
