BPA exposure linked to prostate cancer

New research reveals a link between prostate cancer and exposure to BPA, a chemical found in a lot of household products.

A study of 60 men found prostate cancer patients had higher levels of BPA in their urine than those without cancer.

The difference was even more significant in men under 65 years old.

Researchers say even low levels of BPA exposure can cause cellular changes in cancerous and non-cancerous prostate cells.
