Kids exposed to a commonplace chemical early in life are more likely to have asthma, according to a study published today. The study, which tested 568 children and their mothers in New York City, is the first to link early childhood exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) with asthma. Studies with lab mice, however, have found a similar link.
BPA is back in the news, now that a new study has linked the controversial chemical to potentially dangerous effects on a child's developing nervous system.
Deepening the mystery surrounding the health effects of bisphenol A, a large new study has linked high levels of childhood and adolescent exposure to the industrial chemical to higher rates of obesity — in white children only.
A new study has found ‘compelling’ evidence that the plastic additive bisphenol A (BPA) may negatively impact women’s reproductive systems and cause chromosome damage, birth defects and miscarriages.
Even this limited action is taken only at industry request. The US Food and Drug Administration has amended food additive rules to “no longer provide for the use” of BPA (bisphenol-A) in infant bottles and children’s sippy cups.
The FDA, the organization that conspired with California bureaucrats to attack raw milk distribution centers over the past two years, has just announced it will not ban BPA.
