Research has suggested BPA might be harmful to human health. Now a new study suggests BPA alternatives may not be that different.
That study, published in the journal Current Biology, looked at the effects BPA alternatives had on mice. Researchers noticed some of the chemicals seemed to affect genetic information in sperm and egg cells — possibly impacting multiple generations.
This new study isn't the first to come to these conclusions about these chemicals, but it does add to a growing body of evidence that BPA alternatives might not be all that different from BPA — at least in a lab setting.
