Over 90 Percent of Canadians Found to Have Gender Bending Chemicals

Canadian teenagers may carry the highest levels of bisphenol A — about 30 percent more than the rest of the population.

The figures come from the first survey about the compound conducted by Statistics Canada. Exposure to the estrogen-mimicking chemical is detectible levels in 91 percent of Canadians.

According to The Globe and Mail:

“The survey ... found that the average level of BPA, as the substance is known, was just over one part per billion, an exceedingly small amount, but still a thousand times higher than natural levels of estrogen found in the body ... Some scientists and public-health advocates are worried about even these trace amounts, saying they could contribute to increased risk of breast cancer”.
