BPA raises risk of cancer in human prostate tissue
BPA raises risk of cancer in human prostate tissue (January 7, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Chicago - A new report published in Endocrinology finds that BPA raised risk of cancer in tissue of a human prostate. Researchers first implanted human prostate stem cells into a mouse model. The rodents were then fed a diet for two weeks of either oil or BPA--in amounts equivalent to that consumed by pregnant American women. Results showed that significantly more mice who were fed BPA developed pre-cancerous lesions or prostate cancer, compared to rodents on the oil diet.
