High levels of bisphenol-A (BPA) associated with prostate cancer: study

The human body's endocrine system and DNA are under constant attack from pollutants like bisphenol-A.

Consumers take for granted what they eat from and what they drink out of. Bisphenol-A (BPA) can still be found in the lining of canned food and in plastic water bottles. For that reason, it's typically found in urine samples of 90 percent of the US population. Once consumed, inhaled or absorbed, the chemical goes to work, unseen by the human eye, offsetting hormone levels. Inside the body, it becomes a disrupter, a divider, manipulating DNA. In fact, a new study from the Cincinnati Cancer Center found that BPA disrupts cellular division, which can beckon the development of cancer.
