Healthy, full-term newborns effectively metabolize BPA, remain at low risk

Healthy, full-term newborns effectively metabolize BPA, remain at low risk
April 23, 2015

Many newborns are exposed to bisphenol A, but healthy, full-term infants are able to quickly and effectively metabolize the chemical, according to research in The Journal of Pediatrics.

The results, according to researchers, challenge the belief that newborns bear a greater health risk because they have a more difficult time metabolizing bisphenol A (BPA), which is commonly found in food and drink packaging, cash register receipts and many plastics.
