Washington: Exposure to the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) early in life tends to foster anxiety by altering gene expression in a brain area which detects and respond to signals of danger and threats, says a study."We knew that BPA could cause anxiety in a variety of species, and wanted to begin to understand why and how that happens," said Heather Patisaul, associate professor of biology at North Carolina State University, who led the study. They also found that a soy-rich diet can mitigate these effects.BPA, found in many plastic food containers and bottles, can leach into foods and drinks and cause health problems. Even in low doses, as studies have shown, BPA can disrupt the endocrine systems and can lead to obesity, breast cancer, reproductive issues, and lead to hyperactivity.
