Bisphenol A (BPA) is a widely spreading environmental endocrine disruptor . Its characteristics, including small doses and frequent contact, make it easy to enter human body through drinking water, food, air and other pathways, leading to tumors, infertility, and liver damage. The present review summarizes the underlying mechanism of oxidative stress and its related effects induced by BPA in the liver. The progress of the mechanism for oxidative stress induced by BPA is summarized, including mitochondrial dysfunction, lipid peroxidation and inflammation reaction, liver dyslipidemia, apoptosis, and cell death mechanism. In the future, it is necessary to elucidate the molecular mechanisms and timing of oxidative stress to clarify the effects on different exposures to different genders and growth stages. Besides, studying the toxic effects on BPA surrogates, BPA metabolites and BPA combined with other pollutants in the environment is beneficial to clarify the environmental and human health effects of BPA and provide technical reference for the development of practical control measures.
