BPA (bisphenol A) is an organic compound, commonly found in a variety of consumer-based plastics, such as plastic water bottles, left-over containers and cooking utensils. Orlando bioidentical hormones expert Dr. Landa speaks out about the dangers of BPA and how we can avoid unnecessary exposure to the chemical. Dr. Landa had recently read an article discussing the dangers of BPA in the NY Times and wanted to reflect on it. Dr. Landa states that because BPA acts as an estrogen, it can be particularly harmful for humans to consume – because these synthetic estrogens oftentimes interfere with the production and function of our natural hormones.
