Plastics Chemical BPA Linked With PCOS Part 2

Yesterday we reported that women with PCOS have been found to have higher levels of the plastics chemical bisphenol A (BPA) in their bloodstream. Higher BPA levels were also associated with elevated levels of male hormones in PCOS sufferers.
 
In January, the US Food and Drug Administration and other U.S. health agencies announced that they were pledging $30 million toward short-and long-term research aimed at clarifying the health effects of BPA, which, as well as a component in many plastic products, has also been used inside some cans.

Most of the current data is from laboratory animals and shows subtle effects of BPA on heart disease, sexual dysfunction, cancer, diabetes and hyperactivity, as well as human studies which, among other things, suggest a link between the chemical and aggression in toddler girls.

Manufacturers who use BPA say it has passed stringent safety tests and FDA Principal Deputy Commissioner Joshua Sharfstein has stated: “If we thought it was unsafe, we would be taking strong regulatory action.”

He added that other global regulatory bodies, like Health Canada, have recently completed scientific evaluations and found BPA safe in canned food products and beverages.
