Bisphenol A can lead to infertility in women.

(07/16/2010) The bulk chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) can lead to infertility in women, a new study has found. In this context, the environmental protection organization "Global 2000" warns again about the use of the BPA chemical.

The chemical bisphenol-A is found in many everyday objects. The chemical substance is mainly used to manufacture baby bottles, pacifiers, food packaging, thermal paper, plastic bottles and many other items. Scientists and environmental groups have repeatedly warned against the use of the harmful chemical. So far, only with moderate success.

A recent study has now revealed another bisphenol-A scandal. So the chemical can disrupt the hormonal balance of women and lead to diseases of the ovaries. "A new study suggests the relationship between BPA and infertility in women. The plastic chemical can seriously disrupt the hormonal balance and lead to ovarian diseases," explains Daniela Hoffmann from "Global 2000". Because at a congress of the "Endocrine Society" a new study was published that establishes this connection. About five to ten percent of women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. The disease is caused by a hormonal imbalance and leads to infertility. According to the study, the cause could be the use of bisphenol-A. Women with this disease have higher levels of bisphenol-A in their blood than others.

At the beginning of the year there was a similar study by the University of Harvard that came to a similar result. Bisphenol-A affects not only the maturation of egg cells, but also the course of pregnancy. In 2005, Japanese researchers also made similar observations after unusually high BPA levels in women who had repeated miscarriages.

Global 2000 is therefore demanding an action plan from the responsible politicians to reduce the mass use of the chemical bisphenol-A. "Starting with products for toddlers who are particularly sensitive to BPA, BPA has to disappear from all food packaging," said the environmental activists.

Bisphenol A acts in the human body in a similar way to the female hormone estrogen. Researchers and environmentalists have long suspected far-reaching consequences for human reproduction. Among other things, it is suspected that girls become sexually mature earlier due to BPA. In addition, sperm quality in men has decreased rapidly over the past 50 years. The Federal Environment Agency recently warned against the use of bisphenol A. Nothing has happened to this day, although numerous studies have shown the danger to human health. (sb)
