Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic compound used to make hard and/or clear plastics called polycarbonates (PC), as well as Polyethylene terephthalate (PET/PETE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Polystyrene (PS). These plastics release BPA when they are heated or cooled, however studies suggest that BPA may also be released into a container's contents at room temperature.
BPA is thought to be a hormone disruptor, mimicking and playing havoc with the body's own natural sex hormones. The long-term effects and toxicity of BPA are not yet known, though it does appear to have carcinogenic (cancer-causing) effects and has been linked to human fetal and reproductive damage (especially in males), insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease. Because hormones function at minute doses (parts per billion ranges) even the very lowest levels of BPA toxicity can have a major disruptive effect on the endocrine system of the body.
A 2010 report from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) raised further concerns regarding exposure of fetuses, infants and young children. In September 2010, Canada became the first country to declare BPA as a toxic substance. In the European Union and Canada, BPA use is banned in baby bottles.
