BPA linked to increase risk of obesity in children

The evidence of the dangers of Bisphenol A, also known as BPA, is piling up. High levels of urinary BPA are linked to an increased risk of childhood obesity, according to a recent article from the New York Times

More than 90 percent of Americans have BPA in their urine. BPA is in everything from water bottles, aluminum can liners, to even the receipt they hand you at the grocery store. 

Although BPA was banned in California from baby bottles and sippy cups last year, the chemical has not been mandated to be removed from all consumer applications like many have called for.
