We’re Exposed to Hormone-Disrupting BPA Just By Breathing

Researchers have long known people can be exposed to bisphenol A--or BPA--a chemical commonly found in plastic packaging from receipts to the lining of food cans. BPA is believed to disrupt human hormones. But a new study has found people also can be exposed to the chemical just by breathing.
Published in May 2015 by researchers at the University of Missouri, the study found high concentrations of BPA in both air and water near industrial sites.
