Bisphenol A (BPA) is commonly found in hard, clear plastic bottles and in the lining of cans used for canned food. BPA is an endocrine disrupting chemical that mimics estrogen in the body. It is associated with heart disease, diabetes, obesity, polycystic ovarian syndrome and infertility. But new research suggests that simply eating soy can protect women from BPA's interfering effect on fertility. . . .



This study compared the effect of BPH on fertility in women who ate soy and women who didn't eat soy. The 239 women in the study were all undergoing in vitro fertilization to help them to get pregnant.

Eating soy significantly increased a woman's chances of implantation and of getting pregnant. But the most important finding was that while increasing levels of BPA were associated with decreasing rates of live births in women who did not eat soy, BPA did not lower live birth rates in women who did eat soy. This is impressive, and the differencce was significant. In women with the highest levels of BPA, those who did not eat soy had a live birth rate of only 17% compared to a live birth rate of 49% in those who did.

Earlier research has suggested that ginseng can reduce BPA in women.
