BPA Again Tied to Diabetes Risk

Oct 21, 2011

A new study suggests that people with higher urinary levels of the controversial chemical have a higher risk of diabetes. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a so-called endocrine disruptor, which means it may affect normal hormone activity in the body. This latest study is based on data from a federal health study done between 2003 and 2008. Researchers found that of nearly 4,000 U.S. adults involved, those with the highest urinary BPA levels were more likely to have diabetes.
