The continuous use of plastics continues to unleash its harmful effects despite the international community looking at restrictions and healthier alternatives, which do not seem to be helping the cause. Bisphenol, the ubiquitous chemical and its analogues present in various plastic commodities, is a well-known endocrine disruptor and toxic to the human system. Exposure to this harmful chemical over a continuous period has been significantly associated as a causing factor in several chronic disorders like cardiovascular disease, chronic renal disease, chronic respiratory disease, diabetes, obesity, birth/developmental defects, reproductive disorders even cancer. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envint.2013.12.007.
