[First paragraph] We have been hearing more and more about BPA in the last few years, but what is BPA? Well, BPA is the acronym for Bisphenal A, which is a water-insoluble organic compound discovered in the late 19th Century. In the 1930s concerns were being raised regarding the estrogen-like activity of BPA and by the late 1990s BPA in vivo testing indicated toxic effects at doses, which were previously though were ”safe”(Environ Health Perspect. 2011 Dec;119(12):1788-93 & Endocrine Rev 2009;30:75-95). But, why is it after over a hundred years of use we are coming to terms with the realisation that BPA is not good for us, and does in fact contribute to anatomical and physiological dysfunction, ill health, major diseases, or worse, an early grave?
