A human’s prenatal exposure to certain plastics might affect later reproductive behaviors. University of Missouri Associate Professor Cheryl Rosenfeld said her experiments on monogamous mice find that exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) hinders their likelihood to reproduce. Rosenfeld said she believes these alterations may take place in humans as well and preventative action is necessary.
