BPA and related chemicals: Human safety thresholds for endocrine disrupting chemicals may be inaccurate -- ScienceDaily

Human and rat testes respond differently to endocrine disrupting
chemicals such as BPA in two thirds of all cases, according to a recent
review. As human safety levels are extrapolated from rodent data, the
study could lead to a re-evaluation of the acceptable daily intake for
many endocrine disruptors. Endocrine disruptors are compounds that
interfere with animal hormone (or endocrine) systems in various ways.
