Why is BPA being implicated in so many health articles and research studies being conducted lately? It's been used for decades in a boatload of consumer products, namely metal food and drink containers. Also, dental composites can contain BPA and release it with mercury, exposing adults and children to cancer-causing mutations of the cells in the reproductive, immune and central nervous systems. Now we know that daily exposure to even the lowest concentrations of BPA by pregnant primates can cause fetal abnormalities in the babies they are carrying. Humans who ignore these findings are ignoring other animals that are deformed and/or dying from cancer in the same way that all animals on the planet are affected by consuming chemicals, especially in the womb.
