Michigan Finds High BPA Levels in Children Associated with Higher Risk of Obesity

Children who have higher levels of Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical previously used in many products for kids, like baby bottle and plastic toys, had higher odds of obesity and adverse levels of body fat, according to a new University of Michigan study. The research team studied the levels of BPA found in children’s urine and then measured body fat, waist circumference, and cardiovascular and diabetes risk factors.
