Master study list: BPA effects by bodily system

NOTE: This list is being moved to a static page here. All updates will appear on the web page, not in this post.  This post will no longer be updated.

BPA is a well-known endocrine disruptor. In some cases it acts like a hormone (ex: estrogen) in some cases it blocks hormones. The dangers of BPA include how common it is, multiple effects in the body, and long-lasting effects. Effects continue even after exposure stops. Most studies listed here control for various variables likes sex and age. Here is a list of studies by system, showing the effects of BPA.

It is my intention to update this as I get more information, and use this as a central source of studies by system. If you have a study to add, please cite it in the comments and don't forget to add a plain text link. I will format the study and add it to this page.

Breast Cancer

Heart Disease

Melzer, David, et al. Association of Urinary Bisphenol A Concentration with Heart Disease: Evidence from NHANES 2003/06. Jan 2011, Results: higher urine BPA levels associated with higher rates of various types of heart disease. (See table on study for types of heart disease.)

Mental Health

Slomski A. Chronic Mental Health Issues in Children Now Loom Larger Than Physical Problems. JAMA. 2012;308(3):223-225. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.6951. Results: Top 5 issues for kids are now mental health issues. This article simply points to:

Multiple problems studied

Lang IA, Galloway TS, Scarlett A, et al. Association of Urinary Bisphenol A Concentration With Medical Disorders and Laboratory Abnormalities in Adults. JAMA. 2008;300(11):1303-1310. doi:10.1001/jama.300.11.1303. Higher BPA levels were associated with heart disease, diabetes, and abnormal concentrations of liver enzymes.

Trasande L, Attina TM, Blustein J. Association Between Urinary Bisphenol A Concentration and Obesity Prevalence in Children and Adolescents. JAMA. 2012;308(11):1113-1121. doi:10.1001/2012. jama.11461.Results: As urine BPA levels rose, so did the obesity rate. From 2013 JAMA: The authors studied other environmental phenols and did not find an association with obesity. Wow.

Reproduction problems

Friedrich MJ. Bisphenol A and Reproduction. JAMA. 2011;305(1):28. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.1900.Results: BPA can cause sterility and embryonic death in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
