Bisphenol A and Reproduction

JAMA. 2011;305(1):28. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.1900

Exposure to bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical found in many plastics, can cause sterility and embryonic death in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, suggesting a potential mechanism for the disruptive effect BPA has on human reproduction, according to research findings reported by researchers at Harvard Medical School, in Boston (Allard PA and Colaiácovo MP. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2010;107[47]20405-20410).
