Sofiane Boudalia and Malha Oudir

Abstract:
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical compound extensively employed to manufacture certain plastics and epoxy resin. Due to his hormone-like properties, the BPA can disrupt endocrine function in humans and animals. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the International scientific community launched a broad program, to evaluate and investigate the adversely potential effect of BPA, on human endocrine pathways and health. Consequently, the BPA have been banned in several industrialized countries (France, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden etc.). However, in Algeria BPA still an unknown substance by the public and health professionals. This compound is not subject to any specific regulations. Currently, the debate concerning interdiction or/no interdiction is reported. The purpose of this mini-review is: (a) To provide the reader with the weight of evidence, current regulatory stance, regarding the safe use of BPA in industrials countries and (b) To show the absence of debate, evaluation and legislation in Algeria.
