Study links Bisphenol A to heart disease, diabetes
« on: September 16, 2008, 09:04:20 PM »
Bisphenol A, the highly controversial chemical found in food containers and other household products, is linked with heart disease and type 2 diabetes, new research suggests.

In a study of nearly 1,500 people, researchers in the United Kingdom found that subjects who were diagnosed with heart disease or diabetes had higher concentrations of BPA in their urine.

"There's now a scientific question mark over the safety of bisphenol A in humans, especially in human adults, that needs to be followed up," lead study author Dr. David Melzer, of Peninsula Medical School in Exeter, told CTV News.
