Bisphenol A is a manmade organic chemical. It is a primary component of polycarbonate plastic used in wide range of products from paints to food and drink packages. Research has demonstrated that BPA can migrate from consumer goods into food items and other sources including dentistry. Various studies show leaching of BPA from orthodontic appliances and products to oral environment. Bisphenol A is reported to have adverse effects on brain, mammary gland and reproductive tract. In this review article we discuss the adverse effects of BPA, release of BPA from orthodontic materials and recommendations to limit BPA exposure.

On the contrary, 19, 20 and 29 psoriatic patients were with abnormal lung function tests in the experimental groups B1, B2 and B3 respectively. The results were shown in Table IV. Decreased FVC was detected in patients of Psoriasis belonged to total 48(53.33%) out of 90 patients. Among them 10(33.33%) were in group B1, 13 (43.33%) in group B2 and 25 (83.33%) in group B3.
