  • Overview

    Found in everything from baby bottles to contact lenses, to tooth sealants and soda can linings, bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used to make plastics more resilient. It is also a recognized hormone disrupter, with recent studies raising concerns about a potential link to cancers, diabetes and obesity. What is our current understanding of the true risks to humans? Should we be advising patients to avoid exposures to BPA? Dr. Retha Newbold, developmental reproductive biologist for the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences, breaks down the issues related to this pervasive and potentially harmful product, which some states have even moved to ban in children’s products. Dr. Jim Keany hosts.
