Fetal BPA Exposure in Mice Linked to Estrogen-related Diseases After Adolescence

11 days ago − Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
Low levels of BPA exposure may be considered safe, but new research published online in The FASEB Journal, suggests otherwise. In the report, researchers from Yale show that the genome is permanently altered in the uterus of mice that had been exposed to BPA during their fetal development. These changes were found to mainly affect genes that are regulated by estrogen and are implicated in the formation of estrogen-related…
