 Girls exposed to higher levels of Bisphenol A (BPA) before birth had more behavioural problems and were more anxious and over-active than those only exposed to small amounts of the chemical.

We need to try our best to limit our & our children’s exposure to this toxic chemical.

Reduce our exposure of canned foods, plastic containers or bottles with the number 6 & 7, don’t microwave food in plastic containers.

A recent Reuters report based on a new study of Cincinnati-area kids

Urine samples from 244 pregnant women during their pregnancies, and again right after they gave birth.

Almost all women had BPA in their urine

After that, the researchers measured BPA levels in the children each year.

At age three, parents filled out a survey on kids’ anxiety, depression, aggression and hyperactivity, as well as any behavioural problems or trouble controlling their emotions.

Girls had significantly higher scores on tests of anxiety and depression and had worse behavioural and emotional control.

On the surveys, where a score of 50 represents an average kid, those increases were between nine and 12 points, “a fairly sizable effect” that parents would probably be able to notice

That was after the researchers took into account whether moms were depressed during pregnancy, as well as their race, income, education and marital status.

 BPA is an “endocrine disruptor,” a chemical that mimics or interferes with naturally occurring hormones in the body.

The brain begins developing from very, very early in pregnancy.

Disruption in development could have lasting effects across childhood and the lifetime.”

From the day of conception Baby Fetus has receptors to catch hormones, liken them to a baseball or cricket glove.

The “Catch” of the receptors of these EDC’s of artificial hormones can determine the child’s future.

The amount of EDC’s in the mothers body at conception, during pregnancy, whilst breast feeding, the child’s exposure to EDC’s from food & the environment, can determine the child’s learning ability, behavior & health.

There are hundreds of studies confirming Professor Frederick Vom Saal who has researched Bispenol-A for many years
