The Exposure of a fetus to BPA – an endocrine disrupter chemical similar to DES – can affect his health during adulthood. What our mothers were exposed to during pregnancy influences the rest of our lives. A study led by Hugh S. Taylor, M.D., professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at Yale, clearly shows that BPA exposure permanently affects sensitivity to estrogen.
We need to better identify the effect of environmental contaminants on not just crude measures such as birth defects, but also their effect in causing more subtle developmental errors, Taylor says.
