Default Possible link between food packaging chemical and obesity in children

This article was interesting and worrisome.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...irls/2413101/+

The chemical in question is bisphenol-A (BPA) that is common in food packaging such as plastic bottles, storage containers, and some canned goods. The study was done on children and linked higher BPA levels in urine to increased obesity rates.
