Toxic chemical finally faces worldwide ban
About the author: 

Canada has already classified it as toxic - now health authorities around the world may ban the chemical BPA (bisphenol A), which is used in cans, bottles and food packaging

Canada has already classified it as toxic - now health authorities around the world may ban the chemical BPA (bisphenol A), which is used in cans, bottles and food packaging.
The World Health Organization is considering a global ban because the chemical can affect the fetus and the newborn child, especially if it feeds from a plastic bottle. Canada has recently banned the use of BPA in baby bottles, and has classified the chemical as toxic.
Even low levels of BPA can cause prostate enlargement and affect the development of mammary glands. Research studies have also discovered that people working in factories that manufacture BPA had poor sperm quality, and it could also cause heart disease.
BPA mimics the body's hormones, which can cause neurological problems, too.
