Bisphenol A is an organic compound used in many forms of plastic – mainly polycarbonate plastic – and in epoxy resins. Since the 1930’s there have been concerns of health hazards associated with bisphenol A in products. It is an endocrine disruptor that mimics bodily hormones, and is also suspected to interfere with an infant’s neural development. Bisphenol A is produced using acetone and hydrochloric acid to catalyze the process.
There are numerous health effects to exposure to bisphenol-A otherwise known as BPA. BPA is an endocrine disruptor, which can mimic the body’s own hormones and early development appears to be the period of greatest sensitivity to its effects. There is concern for the effects on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland in fetuses, infants, and children who have been exposed to bisphenol A. Obesity has also been linked to BPA exposure.
