A new research has come up with worrisome findings for pregnant women. It has been revealed by the study that high levels of a chemical present in many plastics and canned food linings may increase the risk of miscarriage in women. The chemical is known as BPA.
Dr. Linda Giudice is a California biochemist and president of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. She said that more researches are needed to be conducted to prove a link, but it is a significant finding that high levels of BPA may have implications for fertility.
The findings of the study will be discussed today at the president of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. ASRM and an obstetricians group highlighted the importance to shift focus on environmental chemicals and their potential hazards for pregnant women last month.
It was seen after tests that BPA was present in nearly everyone's urine, despite the fact that the chemical has been removed from baby bottles and many reusable drink containers in recent years.
According to the federal Food and Drug Administration, BPA is safe as now it is used in other food containers.
Dr. Ruth Lathi, a Stanford University reproductive endocrinologist, said, "It may be that women with higher BPA levels do have other risk factors" for miscarriage that might be amplified by BPA".
