Abstract

Replacements for the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) have become commonplace in plastics labelled BPA free. However, many of these chemicals have similar structures and properties to BPA. A new study reports that replacement bisphenols, which were discovered as laboratory contaminants, are reproductive toxicants and that their effects might persist for multiple generations.
