Gender-bending chemicals in plastic found in 90% of teenage bodies

Bisphenol A (BPA) is found in plastic containers and water bottles, on the inside of food cans and in till receipts.

A study by the University of Exeter, whose researchers tested urine samples from 94 teenagers, found 86 per cent had traces of BPA in their body.
