Bisphenol A & obesity.

Williams MJ, Wang Y, Klockars A, Lind PM, Fredriksson R, Schiöth HB. Exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) Affects Lipid Metabolism in Drosophila melanogaster. Basic Clin Pharmacol Toxicol. 2013 Nov 11. doi: 10.1111/bcpt.12170. PMID: 24215246.

From the abstract:  "Exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) in rodents was shown to induce obesity ... We employed the genetically tractable model organism, Drosophila melanogaster, to test the effects of raising them on food containing various concentrations of BPA. ... we conclude that BPA may inhibit lipid recruitment during starvation in Drosophila."
