Endocrine Disruptors: Bisphenol and Its Relation to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Keywords:Endocrine disruptors, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Endocrinology
Endocrine disruptors is an issue with great importance toxicological. Among them, there is bisphenol A (BPA) and its possible contributing towards the development of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Animal studies and cross-sectional models in humans demonstrate the harmful effects from exposure to BPA and drive the need to seek environmentally safe and healthy alternative to the use of BPA.
