BPA May Cause Heart and Kidney Disease in Children

BPA or Bisphenol A, a chemical used in some plastics and found in aluminum cans and some water bottles, has been found to increase children’s risk for heart and kidney damage.We accumulate BPA in our bodies when the chemical seeps into the foods and drinks we consume.

Researchers analyzed the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data from 2009-2010. In the more than 700 surveys, researchers found that kids who had higher levels of BPA in their urine also had higher albumin-to-creatinine ratios. High levels of albumin have been associated with heart disease and kidney damage.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned BPA from sippy cups and baby bottles last year.
