BPA exposure by infants may increase later risk of food intolerance

If it seems like more people are allergic to, or intolerant of, more and
different kinds of foods than ever before, there might be a reason why.
A new research published in November 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal,
scientists show, for the first time, that there is a link between
perinatal exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) at low doses and the risk to
develop food intolerance in later life. This research involving rats
suggests that early life exposure at a dose significantly below the
current human safety limit set by the FDA affects developing immune
systems, predisposing offspring to food intolerance in adulthood.
