Caption: Bisphenol A, molecular model. This chemical is used in the plastics industry as an antioxidant and as a component of epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastics. There are concerns that increasing levels of bisphenol A in the environment could be harmful. It is already known as a synthetic oestrogen that lowers sperm count in men and is also thought to disrupt foetal development. Atoms are represented as spheres are colour-coded: carbon (black), oxygen (red) and hydrogen (grey).
