Maternal BPA programs Offspring Metabolic Syndrome

By the Collaborative on Health and the Environment

Prenatal exposure to EDCs, specifically the plastic component BPA, can increase the relative risk of adult obesity and metabolic syndrome.

On this call Drs. Ross and Desai presented evidence that prenatal exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), specifically the plastic component bisphenol A, can increase the relative risk of adult obesity and metabolic syndrome.
They also discussed the significance of these findings for neonatal and childhood care, and the need for strategies for the prevention and therapy of obesity to address programming effects of the early life environment.
