BPA Levels May Factor Into Childhood Asthma
(KUTV) Researchers have discovered the chemical BPA may increase the chances of childhood asthma.
BPA is found in some plastic food containers and in the lining of many canned foods.
Researchers measured the BPA levels of more than 500 pregnant women and then followed their kids.
By age 12, a third had asthma.
