BPA EXPOSURE DURING PREGNANCY LINKED WITH INHIBITED TESTIS FUNCTION

Bisphenol A, or BPA is found in many plastic bottles, toys, food liners and other products. Exposure to BPA in the womb and early life may cause long-lasting harm to testicular function, according to a new study conducted in animals. The results were presented Monday at The Endocrine Society’s 92nd Annual Meeting in San Diego.

“We are seeing changes in the testis function of rats after exposure to BPA levels that are lower than what the Food and Drug Administration and Environmental Protection Agency consider safe exposure levels for humans,” said Benson Akingbemi, PhD, the study’s lead author. “This is concerning because large segments of the population, including pregnant and nursing mothers, are exposed to this chemical.”
