A chemical called bisphenol A, or BPA, that is used in baby bottles and hard plastic containers could be dangerous to fetuses and babies, according to the National Toxicology Program. In research on rats, BPA produced breast and prostate cancer, early female puberty and other reproductive and brain disorders. Stores like Toys ‘R’ Us and Wal-Mart say they will stop selling products with BPA.
