Bisphenol A (BPA) can increase the risk of miscarriage


In fact, BPA is found in various products which are frequently used, including canned foods, plastics, dental sealants or credit-card receipts. Because many people have BPA in their urine, it may be supposed that the substance is present even in other not yet evaluated sources. BPA is similar in the structure to the hormone estrogen and this may be the premise for a miscarriage agent. What was demonstrated however is that this substance affects the chromosomes.
Nobody knows at this moment the exact mechanism conducting from the cause to the final effect and that is why new and extended studies are needed to clarify this problem. “I think we have to take these kind of studies very seriously and make sure we’re doing everything we can to better characterize the risk”, said Dr. Kenneth Spaeth, medical director of the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Center at the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System in New York.
