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.).
