BPA Exposure Early in Life linked to Depression and Inattention in Kids

The researchers measured BPA in urine from 292 mothers and from children age 5. Child behavior was assessed at age 7 and 9 for the children and this is what they found.
Prenatal urinary BPA concentrations were associated with increased internalizing problems in boys, including anxiety and depression, at age 7. No associations were seen with prenatal BPA concentrations and behaviors in girls. Childhood urinary BPA concentrations were associated with increased externalizing behaviors, including conduct problems, in girls at age 7 and increased internalizing behaviors and inattention and hyperactivity behaviors in boys and girls at age 7.
