Link Found Between BPA and Girl Aggression

October 25, 2011

Researchers at Harvard University have found that exposure to BPA in the womb can make little girls aggressive and hyperactive. 

The researchers at Harvard's School of Public Health, compared levels of BPA in 244 pregnant women, then after birth, and finally they measured the children at ages 1 - 3, to test for levels of BPA. 

The mothers filled out a survey about their behavior after the three year test. The researchers found that girls were more likely to be hyper, aggressive, depressed, and anxious, if their mothers had higher levels of BPA during pregnancy.
