Bisphenol A Exposure During Pregnancy Negatively Affects Toddler’s Behavior

A study published in Pediatrics this month found that exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) during pregnancy is associated with anxious and depressed behavior and impaired emotional function in toddlers at 3 years of age, especially among girls.

BPA concentrations in maternal urine were measured at 16 and 26 weeks of gestation and at birth, and in child urine at 1, 2, and 3 years of age.

Since bisphenol A is an ingredient in plastics, concerned mothers may wish to reduce their exposure during pregnancy to plastic food and beverage containers bearing the recycling symbol 7.

Last year a government panel highlighted studies linking BPA to cancer.
