New study shows BPA's more dangerous than previously thought

More than 8 billion pounds of BPA are produced every year, and more than 90% of U.S. residents have measurable amounts of BPA in their bodies.

States across the country are moving to ban the chemical in children's products and in 2010 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it has concerns about the chemicals potential effects on brain development of fetuses, infants and children.

The chemical isn't limited to children's products, it's also used in the linings of metal cans, cash register receipts, and even the plastic water bottles we drink out of.
