NEW YORK POST — Four out of every five British teens have their hormones upset by gender-bending chemicals found in plastics, new research suggests.
The chemical, called bisphenol A (BPA), is used to make plastics, including materials that come into contact with food.
But it can mimic the female sex hormone, estrogen, and cause a lower sperm count in men.
The chemical is also thought to be linked to several different types of cancer, including breast and prostate.
