BPA in Food Packaging Tied to Child Obesity: Study

Another expert commented on the new findings, noting that they do not prove that the chemical causes obesity.

"It is possible that BPA is actually a cause of obesity. It could also just be a marker of, for instance, a diet made up of more processed foods that are the actual cause," he said.

It's also worth noting that obesity rates were substantial even among those in the study group with the lowest level of BPA exposure, Katz said.

An industry spokesman said there's no tie between obesity and BPA and he discounted the new findings.

"Attempts to link our national obesity problem to minute exposures to chemicals found in common, everyday products are a distraction from the real efforts under way to address this important national health issue," said Steven Hentges, of the Polycarbonate/BPA Global Group of the American Chemistry Council.

"Due to inherent, fundamental limitations in this study, it is incapable of establishing any meaningful connection between BPA and obesity," Hentges said. "In particular, the study measures BPA exposure only after obesity has developed, which provides no information on what caused obesity to develop."

Hentges added, "It is also relevant to note that dozens of studies have monitored the body weight of laboratory animals exposed to BPA. These studies found no co
