Le bisphénol A, un perturbateur endocrinien prédisposant au diabète et à l'obésité

Abstract : Endocrine disruptors are defined as external substances to the organism which induce deleterious effects on that organism or on its offspring due to interferences on the endocrine system. Since July 2017, Bisphenol A (BPA) has been classified as an endocrine disruptor. It is widespread in our environment as it is widely used through manufacturing processes in various domains. It is also commonly used in the food industry. However, since a few years, there has been a debate as to its role in some pathologies such as diabetes and obesity. Experiments performed on animal models, supported by epidemiological studies, demonstrated that BPA levels in urine had a strong correlation with the development of onset of insulin resistance. We conclude that BPA is one factor, amongst several others, implicated in the onset of diabetes and obesity
