Özet

Bisphenol A (BPA) is an alkylphenol endocrine disruptor chemical (EDC). It is a building block for polycarbonate (PC) plastics and epoxy resins and it is used in food packaging, canned foods, baby bottles, baby food jars and medical devices. Recently, researchers have shown an increased interest in BPA and its effect on reproduction, neurodevelopment and metabolism. The experimental data are rather controversial, and there is no general consensus about BPA's effects. In this review, potential impacts of the BPA on male reproductive system in prenatal and postnatal period are summarized.
