Reproductive Harm Seen in Bisphenol S

Posted October 24, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Bisphenol S, or BPS, a chemical compound found in household plastics and food packaging, could be just as harmful to the reproductive system as Bisphenol A, or BPA, the chemical it was intended to replace, according to a study by UCLA researchers. In fertility tests on common laboratory roundworms, those exposed to either BPA or BPS had decreased fertility, but even moreso among those exposed to low doses of BPS. Researchers say their findings are a cause for concern, as the same reproductive processes that are disrupted by BPS in roundworms are found in mammals.

Independent studies have also show that everything and nothing in excess also leads to irreversible death in 100% of the case studies.

Damned if you. Damned if you don't so enjoy the ride while you're still in the vehicle and not under it!

Damned right. I won't let the latest findings of Doctors and Scientists stop me eating plastic, next year it will be like "people aren't eating enough to prevent x type of cancer"
