Bisphenol A (BPA) turns up yet again

Many in the dental field are aware of the concern over Bisphenol A, or BPA, which is a component of certain resin-based dental materials. The concern is that it is among a group of chemicals that act like estrogen in the body, called pseudo-estrogens. Further, BPA is a carcinogen.
