A new mouse study reveals that exposure to BPA at levels 25 times lower than deemed safe has an impact on brain development.
A new method reveals BPA levels may be more than 44 times higher in humans than previously believed.
Researchers say parabens and other chemicals found in common cosmetic products may negatively impact a woman's hormone levels, increasing the risk for certain diseases.
According to researchers, even lower levels of BPA consumed during pregnancy can lead to neurodevelopmental problems and affected brain function later in life for offspring.
New research suggests environmental exposure to bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical commonly found in plastics and resins, could suppress a gene critical to nerve cell function and the development of the central nervous system. Exposure to BPA could predispose humans to a number of neurodevelopmental and other health disorders.
