BPA and Breast Cancer

From a study published May 2012, Department of Anatomy and Cellular Biology, Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston, MA 02111.

Abstract:
"The xenoestrogen bisphenol A (BPA) used in the manufacturing of various plastics and resins for food packaging and consumer products has been shown to produce numerous endocrine and developmental effects in rodents."

"Exposure to low doses of BPA during fetal mammary gland development resulted in significant alterations in the gland's morphology that varied from subtle ones observed during the exposure period to precancerous and cancerous lesions manifested in adulthood."
