Exposure to BPA Increases Risk of Asthma Development

A new study in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology assesses whether BPA exposure increased allergic inflammation in children. “Prenatal urinary BPA concentrations were associated inversely with wheeze at age 5 years (P = .02). Urinary BPA concentrations at age 3 years were associated positively with wheeze at ages 5 years (P = .02) and 6 years (P = .03). BPA concentrations at age 7 years were associated with wheeze at age 7 years (P = .04). BPA concentrations at ages 3, 5, and 7 years were associated with asthma (P = .005; P = .03; and P = .04, respectively).”
