ABSTRACT
The article concerns the health risk posed by liquid formulas to infants. Tests by both the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration show 1 of every 16 infants fed with liquid formulas would be exposed to the bisphenol A at doses exceeding those that caused harm in laboratory studies. The report advises parents who use formula to choose the powdered version because bisphenol A is more easily absorbed from the container into liquid formula.
