BPA, bisphenol A, is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA is found in plastics that store food and beverages, such as water bottles, baby bottles, and other plastic containers.
BPA is an endocrine disruptor — a substance that interferes with the production, secretion, transport, action, and function of natural hormones. BPA can imitate our body’s own hormones in a way that could be hazardous for health. Babies and young children are said to be especially sensitive to the effects of BPA.
Research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with BPA. Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland of fetuses, infants, and children.
Companies have recently began using BPS, bisphenol S in place of BPA, but it may be just as harmful.
