    BPA mimics estrogen in the body, which can cause the early onset of puberty in girls. It also increases the risk of cancer in the body. This is similar to the effects of being overweight which also increases estrogen in the body.

    BPA, or Bisphenol A, is most commonly found in plastics and plastic additives. The safety of plastics containing BPA has been in question since the 1930’s but in 2008 governmental reports brought much light to this issue. The main concern is that BPA is an endocrine disruptor and can interfere with an individual’s hormones. There are a variety of health issues linked to BPA, including breast cancer, neurological issues, obesity, prostate cancer and reproductive harm. To limit exposure to the health issues related to BPA, consumer groups recommend avoiding the use of polycarbonate plastic containers and lined canned goods.
