Also, I came across some recent studies that I think merit your consideration with respect to the biological plausibility of this link-specifically I’m thinking about two animal model studies documenting fetal BPA exposure causing asthma in mice. In particular the link to allergic asthma seems particularly strong in light of the studies that tie BPA to increased allergy. Please let me know if you are interested and I can forward you the pertinent PDFs.
