Exposure to BPA early in pregnancy leads to increased wheezing problems problems during the first three years of life.

Prenatal exposure late in pregnancy, did not lead to the same effect.


Quoted Text
The Department of Health and Human Services recommends purchasing plastic containers marked at the bottom with recycle codes 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6  because they are very unlikely to contain BPA. You can also look for the "BPA-Free" label when shopping for canned goods and various household items.

The National Toxicology Program ...recommend consumers beware of the sales receipts you receive particularly at grocery stores and ATMs, as the developer used for dyes in thermal paper may contain levels of BPA which could pose a risk for human exposure. An NIH spokesperson suggests not taking a receipt unless you have to while the government continues to investigate.

C-Sharp,
Thanks for posting this. Very important information for a woman trying to get pregnant or in her first trimester.
