Long-Term Health Threats of BPA and Other Endocrine Disruptors


Forum Network

Published on Jan 14, 2014

BPA and other endocrine disruptors are used in plastics, can linings, and other products. These chemicals, which are now widespread in the environment, are implicated in cancer, reproduction problems, childhood obesity, and autism. Drs. Ana Soto and Carlos Sonnenschein are leading researchers in this field. They explain how endocrine disruptors affect living organisms over multiple generations and why the impact is so broad. And they discuss the urgent need to control the use of such chemicals.
