Plastics Chemical BPA Linked With PCOS

Women with PCOS have higher levels of the ubiquitous plastics chemical bisphenol A (BPA) in their bloodstream, a new study has found.
 
And higher BPA levels were also associated with elevated levels of male hormones in PCOS sufferers, according to new research presented at the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in San Diego.
 
The findings add to burgeoning but not-yet-definitive evidence that BPA may have adverse health effects in humans. BPA has been found in many plastic products as well as the metal linings of some cans.
 
The chemical, which acts similarly to the female hormone estrogen, has come under close scrutiny in the past several years, with studies linking it to a host of health and developmental problems, including PCOS-associated heart disease and diabetes.
 
Manufacturers who use BPA maintain, however, that the chemical has passed numerous health checks.
 
More information on the new findings tomorrow.
