Association between urinary bisphenol A concentration and obesity prevalence in children and adolescents.

JAMA : the journal of the American Medical Association | 19 Sep 2012

L Trasande, TM Attina and J Blustein
Abstract
Bisphenol A (BPA), a manufactured chemical, is found in canned food, polycarbonate-bottled liquids, and other consumer products. In adults, elevated urinary BPA concentrations are associated with obesity and incident coronary artery disease. BPA exposure is plausibly linked to childhood obesity, but evidence is lacking to date.
