ABSTRACT
The chemical found in plastic containers and cans has been linked to reproductive and other problems. A new study by Stanford showed that women with high BPA levels were 80% more likely to have a first-trimester miscarriage than those with lower levels. BPA is structurally similar to estrogen, which could disrupt hormone signals. While further tests are needed to link BPA to miscarriages, researchers suggest pregnant women lower their exposure to the chemical by not cooking food in plastic.
