BPA strongly linked to kidney, heart issues

(January 10, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From New York – BPA exposure may adversely affect the kidneys and the heart, according to a report published in Kidney International. Researchers reviewed data on over 700 children aged 6-19, examining urine concentrations of BPA. Children who had the highest amount of BPA in their urine had an elevated albumin to creatinine ratio—a marker of renal impairment that also raises risk of heart disease. These results were consistent even after researchers accounted for risk factors such as smoke exposure, high blood pressure and weight.
