Early BPA exposure linked to prostate cancer in an animal model
Early BPA exposure linked to prostate cancer in an animal model (June 17, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Illinois - Early BPA exposure may raise risk of prostate cancer, according to a report presented at the ENDO 2013 meeting. Researchers injected human prostate stem cells into a mouse model and the mice developed human prostate tissue. Researchers then simulated BPA exposure during prostate development by feeding the rodents levels of BPA consistent with those seen in pregnant women. After exposing the mice to estrogen to mimic aging, researchers found that one third of the mice fed BPA developed signs of cancer--when compared to only 12% of those not fed BPA.
