A new study conducted by the New York University of Medicine reports that packaged food is directly correlated to the obesity levels rising in American children because of their exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA).
According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 2003, 92.6 % of children 6 years and older had obviously measurable levels detected in tested urine.
The study also concludes that BPA disrupts other multiple metabolic mechanisms.
BPA has been identified as causation for recent early pubescent development in our children. Between the ages of 5 – 7 is the new average pubescent age, wherein this physiological change used to occur several years later just a generation ago.
BPA is a highly toxic estrogen accelerator that is used in all plastic products commercially produced. The chemical mimics natural estrogen when leeched into the body. It offsets natural estrogen levels, causing the body to hasten its pubescent generation. Nearly all children are exposed to this chemical through plastic toys, pacifiers, bottles, sippy cups. Its influence on natural hormone distribution within the body has proven to be incredibly damaging.
In April of this year, GlobalData surmised that manufacturers would produce 4.7 million metric tons of BPA to be used in plastics worldwide.
