CHICAGO (AP) — Exposure to the chemical bisphenol-A before birth could affect girls’ behavior at age 3, according to the latest study on potential health effects of the compound used in the manufacturing of some plastic drink bottles and food can linings. 

Preschool-aged girls whose mothers had relatively high urine levels of BPA during pregnancy scored worse but still within a normal range on behavior measures including anxiety and hyperactivity than other young girls.    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_MED_BISPHENOL_CHILDRENS_BEHAVIOR?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2011-10-24-08-36-34
