Disrupted Development: the Dangers of Prenatal BPA Exposure

Disrupted Development: the Dangers of Prenatal BPA Exposure

For our September 2013 report, Disrupted Development: the Dangers of Prenatal BPA Exposure, the Breast Cancer Fund did a comprehensive review of the scientific evidence linking fetal BPA exposure to later-life health problems. What we found is deeply troubling: Prenatal exposure to this toxic endocrine-disrupting chemical is of even greater concern than childhood exposure.

During the prenatal period, the foundation is set for how the body’s systems develop, and animal and human studies show us that fetal exposure to BPA can set the stage for later-life diseases, including breast cancer.

This report is a clarion call to legislators and manufacturers. We can’t place another burden on pregnant women by giving them the nearly impossible job of avoiding BPA. We have to get BPA out of food cans so that all of us—especially the next generation—are safe.
