Project 1 Leader John Meeker (U. of Michigan) was recently quoted in a CNN article on the effect of BPA on the masculinity of male mice. The study determined that female mice found BPA-exposed male mice to be less attractive, even though their adult hormone levels were no different than male mice who were not exposed.
Says Dr. Meeker:
“In a human study, we often depend on an outcome like hormone levels…It’s possible that BPA could be impacting reproduction in a way that wouldn’t be picked up in our typical way of studying things. [This study] may inform how we go about studying those things in the future.”
