Exposure in the womb to bisphenol A, a chemical used to make plastic containers and to line cans of food, is associated with behavior and emotional problems in young girls, new research has shown for the first time.

The study was led by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, and Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia.
