Bisphenol A (BPA)

This chemical substance is considered a hazardous chemical. Because it acts like the hormone estrogen, BPA is considered a risk factor for animal and human reproduction and has been associated with reproductive disorders in humans and animals.

Due to processing and recycling of BPA-containing products, the chemical can be detected in water. Because BPA can leach from products, absorption can lead to detection in blood and urine samples.

Bisphenol A in Children's Dentistry

"Dental sealants and composite filling materials containing Bisphenol A (BPA) derivatives are increasingly used in childhood dentistry. Evidence is accumulating that BPA and some BPA derivative can pose health risks attributable to their endocrine-disrupting properties."
