“BPA may be the cause of the ADHD epidemic: Scientists link the plastics chemical to the condition”

New research published in the journal Environment International highlights the fact that BPA, like other chemicals used in plastics, is an endocrine disruptor, meaning it interferes with hormone production and balance.

Children exposed to BPA early on in life, the review found, are much more susceptible than other children to develop behavioral problems like hyperactivity later in life. The review looked at more than 30 different scientific studies on the subject, its authors declaring it to be a “compelling piece of evidence” in the puzzle of what causes ADHD.

even in relatively low amounts, exposure to BPA is damaging to the endocrine system.”
