According to KTVU.com, “several popular baby bottle brands have been found to leach potentially harmful levels of a toxic chemical linked to developmental, neural and reproductive problems, according to a new study released Tuesday.” The independent study was allegedly conducted to test whether bisphenol-A, a chemical reportedly used to make clear plastic for consumer products, including baby bottles, was released into the bottles contained. Five popular baby bottle brands were tested and all five reportedly leached bisphenol-A at levels “found to cause harm in numerous laboratory animal studies.” According to one researcher, plastics “material in containers breaks down through use and releases bisphenol A into liquids and food.” Bisphenol-A or BPA has allegedly been linked to cancers, impaired immune function, early onset of puberty, obesity, diabetes and hyperactivity.
