Focus on Bisphenonel A – Statement of Health and Environmental Organizations on Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals

Health and environmental groups working on child health issues and chronic disease prevention are deeply concerned about the pervasive, multiple exposures to chemicals known and suspected of disrupting endocrine (hormone) function. We are particularly concerned about ongoing, low-level exposures to Bisphenol A (BPA), a synthetic chemical widely used in common products, including hard plastic water bottles and some dishware, and the lining of nearly all food and beverage cans.
