Bisphenol A bleibt "besonders besorgniserregend" - Entscheidung des EuG - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die umstrittene Chemikalie Bisphenol A wird in der EU weiterhin als gefährlich eingestuft, hat das Europäische Gericht entschieden. Ein Branchenverband hatte gegen die Bewertung geklagt.

Chemicals in packaging, carpets and non-stick pans 'may contribute to obesity' | Science | The Guardian
Chemicals used to make non-stick pots and pans, stain-resistant carpets, and food packaging may contribute to high levels of obesity by disrupting the body’s ability to burn calories, scientists say.

Researchers at Harvard University examined the effects of compounds called perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), which have already raised concerns among some health experts after animal experiments and other studies linked them to cancer, high cholesterol and immune problems.

'BPA-free' plastic accelerates embryonic development, disrupts reproductive system in zebrafish : science
Yeah. You know why? Because we replaced BPA with another plasticizing compound that does the exact same thing. BPS, the BPA replacement chemical, is structurally very similar to BPA and, therefore, we shouldn't be shocked when it exerts a similar impact on the reproductive system. Because we need the plasticizers to serve a particular function in the production of plastics, they are relegated to a fairly particular type of chemical structure. This means there all pretty likely to look the same and act the same. That is, as weak estrogens.

The Chemical in Cupcake Wrappers and Cookware Might Be Causing Cancer | Mother Jones
C8 is in a chemical family called PFCs (perfluorinated chemicals)—the same water- and stain-proofing class of chemicals used to make rain gear, pizza box and popcorn bag liners, stainproof upholstery treatments, and those waxy slips that hold pastries at cafes. Dozens of studies have linked PFCs to all sorts of health problems, from kidney and testicular cancer to increased risk of miscarriages. (3M phased out the chemical from production in 2002 due to potential health hazards.) [...] PFC contamination may not be isolated to the Ohio Valley. According to an Environmental Working Group (EWG) report that uses recent EPA data, C8 has been found in the drinking water in 94 counties serving more than 6 million Americans. (An interactive version of this map is available here.) [...] The EPA is in the process of investigating C8's health effects; in the meantime, it has set voluntary C8 safety standards to be used by utility companies. [...] avoid nonstick, stainproof, or waterproof items

How I discovered a coffee pot was making my patient sick - Quartz
In January, a study published in PLOS linked environmental chemical exposure with early menopause. This study suggests a connection between the ubiquitous chemicals we’re exposed to and our health. Other studies support this concept, such as a 2014 research study showing BPA in the liners of canned beverages increases blood pressure. Health care providers generally are not taught to consider common household items as a potential cause of disease, but perhaps we should be. BPA is a known endocrine disruptor. Research evidence links BPA exposure with early puberty, infertility, breast cancer, and abnormal periods. It has also been tied to obesity, prostate cancer, and neurodevelopmental problems in children. The National Health and Nutrition Survey (NHANES) found that obese adults are likely to have higher levels of BPA in their urine. [...] And lest you think “BPA-free” is the answer, the substitute plastics which contain bisphenol S or other resins appear to be equally hazardous.

BPA linked to errors in human egg development — Environmental Health News
A new study with human eggs shows that bisphenol A causes errors that can prevent eggs from developing fully and may contribute to infertility. The effects were found at the lowest dose tested, which was lower than levels that have been measured in women's ovaries. The findings are consistent with numerous animal studies.
