Need another reason to avoid BPA?

A study published Monday in Pediatrics online reports that

… mothers with high levels of bisphenol A (BPA) in their urine were more likely to report that their [daughters] were hyperactive, aggressive, anxious, depressed and less in control of their emotions than mothers with low levels of the chemical.

While several studies have linked BPA to behavioral problems in children, this report is the first to suggest that a young girl’s emotional well-being is linked to her mother’s exposure during pregnancy rather than the child’s exposure after birth.

Read about it in the Washington Post. And avoid consuming anything from a plastic bottle or metal can.
