Bisphenol Exposure and Type 2 Diabetes: New Evidence for a Potential Risk Factor
But wait, there's more: a third recent article in Environmental Health Perspectives. Forgot to post it earlier in the month. Here's the first graf:
The plasticizer bisphenol A (BPA), used in can linings, thermal paper, and polycarbonate plastics, has been associated with a wide range of health outcomes, including type 2 diabetes. Numerous experimental and population-based studies over the last decade have explored the BPA–diabetes relationship. Now a longitudinal study published in Environmental Health Perspectives, examining not just BPA but also its widely used substitute bisphenol S (BPS), adds to the evidence. The study found positive associations between incidence of diabetes and exposure to both BPA and BPS, independent of traditional risk factors.
