Hong Kong Baptist University research reveals that bisphenol S exposure may promote breast tumour progression and increase cancer risk


HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 18 January 2022 – A study led by Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) has revealed that different degrees of exposure to bisphenol S (BPS), an industrial chemical widely used in paper products and plastic containers, are associated with the growth and deterioration of breast tumours in a mouse model. The research results suggest the need for more in-depth and comprehensive research on the potential negative impact of BPS on human health, and the ongoing search for a safer alternative for use in industrial production may be warranted.
