Chemistry Group Highlights “Flaws” In Study Of BPA Impact On Unborn Children

October 7, 2009: 02:33 AM EST
The latest study to suggest significant health risks associated with exposure to bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical used to manufacture plastics, is flawed, according to the American Chemistry Council. The small-scale study, published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, found a link between exposure to BPA by pregnant women and aggressive behavior in two-year-old girls. The ACA said the authors of the study acknowledged design flaws and noted that the flaws can only be rectified in a larger, “more robust study.” “Inherent in the design,” ACA said, “is the inability to establish cause-effect relationships.”
