90 Percent of Cord Blood from U.S. Babies Tests Positive for BPA

by Nick

Interesting and disturbing article from NaturalNews.com today.

Based on testing conducted by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), 9 out of 10 babies in the U.S. have bisphenol A (BPA) in their umbilical cord blood.

This is especially disturbing because babies are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of BPA, even at very low doses.

Hopefully, as more studies like this one come to light, congress and governments in other countries, will feel pressured to move faster on the elimination of BPA in all consumer products.

Worse still, this study found hundreds of other chemicals in the umbilical cord blood.

“Not only was BPA found in babies, but 231 other chemicals were detected as well, indicating that human beings are exposed to more toxic chemicals than ever. Experts fear that such an onslaught of toxicity may cause permanent damage to the next generation of Americans.”
