Researchers have used the California mouse species to prove that offspring born to parents who are exposed to BPA receive decreased parental care by both the mother and father
Biparental care of offspring, or care that is administered by both parents, occurs in only a minority of species, including humans. Past studies have shown that maternal care can be negatively affected when females are exposed to endocrine-disrupting chemicals including bisphenol A (BPA); however, no studies have shown how this chemical can affect maternal and paternal care when both parents are exposed.

American consumers think bottled water is a healthy drink choice and want it readily available
The vast majority of consumers see water as a smart beverage choice and consider bottled water to be healthier than soft drinks, according to newly released findings from a survey conducted online by Harris Poll of more than 2,000 U.S. adults 18 years or older for the International Bottled Water Assn. (IBWA). The poll’s conclusions reflect healthy hydration trends that are driving annual bottled water sales and consumption increases, and make it clear why the Beverage Marketing Corp. (BMC) says that bottled water is on course to become the No.
