If you were concerned about bisphenol A (BPA) and started to pick up Tupperware and bottles that were labelled BPA-free, you still aren’t in the clear. That’s because recent animal studies have revealed that a replacement for BPA – called bisphenol S (BPS) – may also be hazardous to your health.

In 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the sale of baby bottles containing BPA, a chemical compound often found in plastics. The ban followed the discovery that the chemical mimics estrogen, harming the brain and reproductive development in fetuses, infants and children.

Instead, the FDA promoted plastics containing BPS for both babies and adults because it was believed to be more resistant to leaching and, therefore, cause little or no harm. Today, more than 80 percent of Americans show signs of having BPS in their urine.
BPS is still a toxin

Once the chemical enters the body, it can disrupt the normal functioning of your cells in the same way that BPA does, according to a 2013 study by the University of Texas’s Medical Branch. Researchers learned that exposure to BPS activates proteins involved in cell mutation or death, which can cause serious damage to genes. This can potentially lead to metabolic disorders like obesity, diabetes, asthma, birth defects and even cancer.
