BPA exposure at a young age can inhibit pregnancy later in life

We come in contact with BPA, also known as bisphenol A, many times each day, often without even knowing it. BPA is in cash register receipts, the lining of canned foods and beverages, hard plastic bottles, kitchenware, DVDs and many other sources. Just about all of us have BPA in our bodies, where it can interfere with the action of estrogen and other hormones.

The latest study shows that exposure to BPA early in life may make it harder to get pregnant as an adult. So it's important to help your children avoid being exposed to BPA in bottles, toys, and other household items. Read my posts for great BPA-free alternatives!
