While long suspected, the National Toxicology Program, a government agency, concludes that there is "some concern" for neural and behavioral effects on fetuses, infants, and children at current human exposures from Bisphenol A, a common component of plastics, including baby bottles. They also have "some concern" that exposure in these populations based on effects in the prostate gland, mammary gland, and an earlier age for puberty in females.
Bonnie - of course, this is old news to most of you. The government is years behind as usual. This is just another example of allowing a chemical into the human population that lacked adequate study and safety testing. If any of you are still using BPA baby bottles or products containing BPA, look for alternatives.
