(NaturalNews) Bisphenol A (BPA) is an estrogen-mimicking substance that has been linked to a number of crippling health conditions. It has been tied to obesity and fertility problems, and numerous studies have found that it may devastate human health in other ways. Canada has taken a large step in the fight against BPA. Even in the face of industry opposition, Canada has declared BPA to be a toxic substance.

The ruling would have been made sooner, as evidence of BPA's toxicity has been readily available for quite some time, but the American Chemistry Council attempted to halt the process. On July 15, 2009, the American Chemistry Council filed a formal notice of objection. The council claimed that BPA was indeed safe; and therefore, there was no reason to declare it a toxic substance. The government rejected the objection on July 27, 2010, stating that the council failed to "bring forth any new scientific data or information with respect to the nature and extent of the danger posed by bisphenol A."

Rick Smith is the director of Environmental Defence, a non-profit environmental organization that has spent 5 years pushing for BPA to be labeled as toxic. "{This is a really significant public health victory," he said. As news of the victory hit, Rick and his associates celebrated with champagne. "We're seeing a rapid and dramatic transformation of the children's product industry."

A study coming from the University of Michigan found that BPA adversely affects male fertility. The study noted that men who contained high levels of BPA in their bodies were more likely to have low sperm counts. Professor John Meeker, who led the study, highlighted the fact that BPA may certainly pose a danger to adults. "Much of the focus for BPA is on the exposures in utero (in the womb) or in early life, which is of course extremely important, but this suggests exposure may also be a concern for adults."

With BPA detected in 90% of Canadians, it is evident that many products contain BPA. A Harvard study has revealed that dangerously high levels of BPA can be found in dental fillings and sealants. Canada labeling BPA toxic will now create major shifts in industry, with manufacturers being forced to adhere to the new policy. This will help to eliminate BPA from the market, and many countries may follow with similar rulings. Many states in the United States are seeking similar BPA bans, while the FDA asserts that BPA is completely safe.
