We have previously written to you about the dangers of bisphenol A (BPA)–a chemical used often in baby-bottles and other hard-plastic products, including food containers. Medical News Today reports that BPA poses dangers to women as well.
According to the report, a team of U.S. scientists suggested that BPA "may harm the heart, particularly in women, because of what they discovered in tests on female rats and mice." The studies revealed that "exposure to BPA or estrogen or both made the hearts of female rats and mice behave abnormally."
Other studies have linked BPA to a variety of health problems, including neurological defects and diabetes, as well as breast and prostate cancer.
