Bisphenol A (BPA) used in food containers may cause breast cancer

Food Consumer, Lisle,IL. December 3, 2005
"Bisphenol A (BPA), a food container chemical, affects female fetuses in the womb and increases the risk of breast cancer in the affected females when they grow into their adulthood, according to a study that appears in a recent issue of the journal Endocrinology. Bisphenol A is only one of chemicals used in many household products that may potentially cause health problems. Another chemical we reported recently is called phthalate, which has been linked with abnormal development of reproductive organs in pre-birth males."
