Because BPA mimics estrogen which is a known contributor to breast cancer, scientists are studying a likely link between beast cancer and BPA. A new study out of Tufts University shows a connection between mammary cancer and BPA in rats. Another recent study on rhesus monkeys shows similar results of a higher susceptibility to mammary cancer because of changes in the mammary glands after exposure to BPA. A September report from the advocacy group Breast Cancer Fund compiles data from 60 different studies linking BPA to breast cancer.
It’s time for regulation of BPA and so many other chemicals, for our health, our children’s health and the health of our planet.
