BPA activates immune response in mice that passes down through generations

10개월 전

Some plastic food and beverage containers still contain bisphenol A (BPA), which can mimic the hormone estrogen. Although experts say that small amounts of BPA detected in foods are unlikely to cause problems, some people worry that constant low-level exposures could have health effects, especially for developing fetuses, infants and children. Now, researchers report in ACS' Journal of Proteome Research that in mice, BPA activates an immune response that persists for at least three generations.

Epidemiological studies have linked in utero BPA exposure with the onset of childhood asthma. Other studies have shown that treating pregnant mice with the substance induces asthma-like symptoms in the mothers and their pups.

Pretty scary article about the dangers BPA poses to future generations. Asthma is a huge problem total in kids when thirty years ago it was pretty rare to see a kid with Asthma now it feels like half the kids you see have some form of asthma or allergic reaction to something. It get passed down through multiple generations too which means we could ban BPA tomorrow and our kids, grand kids and great grand kids could be dealing 100 years from now. That's just mind blowing to me and makes me wonder what other kind of harmful chemicals out there that are doing the same thing.

Time to ban BPA and all the other estrogen mimicing chemicals out there. These dangerous plastics are probably a bigger health crisis than GMOs. People need to wake up and take action.
