We’ve seen it all at JunkScience.com, and this has to be some sort of new low.
In a new “study” published in the perpetual junk science machine known as Environmental Health Perpsectives, researchers blame bisphenol A (BPA) for causing neonatal neurobehaviorial abnormalities — based on the case of a single child.
Here’s the researchers’ rationale: the child’s mother reportedly had relatively urinary levels of BPA and the baby had developmental issues — so BPA is to blame. QJED.
It’s none of the myriad developmental factors that the researchers didn’t consider — it’s BPA… it’s appalling.
Notably, one of the study authors is Bruce Lanphear. JunkScience fans will remember Lanphear as a peddler of lead hysteria.
