What is Bisphenol A?

Bisphenol A is an organic compound, mainly used to make plastics. It is used to produce a wide variety of every day products, including water bottles, sports equipment, medical and dental devices, CDs and DVDs, and various household appliances.

Why is Bisphenol A harmful to health?

For some years, and after numerous studies, BPA has been suspected of being harmful to humans. Its toxic effects are due to the consumption of materials which contain this substance, such as packaging, cans, or a wide range of containers. The continuous presence of this compound in the organism has been related to a greater risk of suffering from various serious illnesses. Bisphenol is capable of causing imbalances in the hormonal system at very low concentrations, with possible repercussions on health.
