Scientists say common plastic is sexually active

" In a new report, scientists Frederick vom Saal and Claude Hughes say that of 115 studies published examining low doses of a chemical common in plastics, 94 of the studies found harmful effects.

" Vom Saal, a reproductive biologist at University of Missouri, Columbia, said there is now an 'overwhelming weight of evidence' that the plastics compound is harmful. 'You can't open a scientific journal related to sex hormones and not read an article that would just floor you about this chemical. ... The chemical industry's position that this is a weak chemical has been proven totally false. This is a phenomenally potent chemical as a sex hormone.'
