BPA Substitute Could Spell Trouble: Experiments Show Bisphenol S Al...

"BPA-free" stuff is made with plastic containing bisphenol S.

... BPS is now known to be used in everything from currency to thermal receipt paper, and widespread human exposure to BPS was confirmed in a 2012 analysis of urine samples taken in the U.S., Japan, China and five other Asian countries.

Like BPA, the study found, BPS disrupts cellular responses to the hormone estrogen, changing patterns of cell growth and death and hormone release. Also like BPA, it does so at extremely low levels of exposure.

... levels likely to be produced by BPS leaching from containers into their contents.

... BPS disrupts cellular responses to the hormone estrogen, changing patterns of cell growth and death and hormone release. [emphasis mine]
