BPA Replacement Permeates Paper Products Concerns about the health effects of bisphenol A have led manufacturers to produce and market BPA-free products. However, a new study has found that one of the compounds that replaces BPA is just as prevalent in paper products and could lead to significant human exposure (Environ. Sci. Technol., DOI: 10.1021/es300876n). Because of these results, the scientists who performed the study say that toxicology research is desperately needed on the BPA alternative.

Why 6-Year-Old Girls Want To Be Sexy (STUDY) By: Jennifer Abbasi, LiveScience Contributor Published: 07/16/2012 12:18 PM EDT on LiveScience Most girls as young as 6 are already beginning to think of themselves as sex objects, according to a new study of elementary school-age kids in the Midwest. Researchers have shown in the past that women and teens think of themselves in sexually objectified terms, but the new study is the first to identify self-sexualization in young girls. The study, published online July 6 in the journal Sex Roles, also identified factors that protect girls from objectifying themselves. Psychologists at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., used paper dolls to assess self-sexualization in 6- to 9-year-old girls. Sixty girls were shown two dolls, one dressed in tight and revealing "sexy" clothes and the other wearing a trendy but covered-up, loose outfit.

Baby's first gut bacteria may come from mum's mouth - health - 21 May 2014 Babies in the womb are not as sheltered from the outside world as you might think. The placenta harbours a unique ecosystem of bacteria which may have a surprising origin – the mother's mouth. Disturbances of the placenta's bacterial community may explain why some women give birth prematurely, and could also be one of the ways that a woman's diet affects her offspring's gut bacteria, and as a result the child's disease risk. "Different nutrients [in the mother's diet] are a huge determinant of which microbes take up residence in the placenta," says Kjersti Aagaard of Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, who led the study. In the past decade there has been growing awareness of the important role of the human microbiome – all the bacteria, viruses and fungi that live on and in our bodies. Disturbances to the gut microbiome have been linked with conditions ranging from obesity to autism.
