BPA Plays Affect on Abnormal Hart Rhythm

US researchers stated that the chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) which is found in many product from children bottles to lining in can food, can lead yet to another health problem this time to abnormal hart rhythm, although it was only noticed in female rodents.

In previous studies it was shown that the chemical had an affect on the reproductive, nervous and immune systems. Also, a study in humans reported last year found an increased prevalence of cardiovascular disease in people with high levels of BPA in the urine.

Arrhythmia's were most frequent in the female rats and mice when they received both BPA and estrogen, at levels normally found in female humans. Arrhythmia's occur when the heart beats too slowly or too fast or when it skips heartbeats. These heart rhythm irregularities can cause fatigue, lightheadedness, fainting or sudden cardiac death. If a fast heart rate affects the heart's ability to pump, it can cause a heart attack.

Although the FDA approved the chemical as safe for use we can see now from the vast amount of articles that there is more problems with it then originally thought.
