Study: BPA May Increase Risk of Heart Disease

Wed, 7 Mar 2012 16:05:53 EST

A recent study published in Circulation has linked heart disease with bisphenol A (BPA), the controversial industrial chemical that is ubiquitous in plastics, resins, paint, can linings, and other products, reports Time.
 
Examining data from a long-running British health survey, researchers discovered that people who had heart disease also tended to have higher urinary concentrations of BPA.
 
Even prior to this finding, BPA was a highly controversial chemical and has been banned in China, Canada, Malaysia, and all of the European Union. In the United States, its use has been widespread in consumer products since the 1960s. Past research indicates that BPA can mimic the hormone estrogen, and thus it is considered to be an endocrine disruptor. Some scientists claim that BPA is not a health threat, but studies have linked the chemical to a greater risk of cancer, diabetes, obesity, and behavioral problems in young children.
 
An estimated 6 billion pounds of BPA are produced globally every year, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG).
 
'EMSL Analytical tests for BPA and other chemicals in a variety of consumer products, such as plastics, coatings, tableware, fluids, and food,' states Shannon Kauffman, Laboratory Supervisor at EMSL. 'If needed, we can perform customized testing services for our clients as well.'
