UoK researchers tested laboratory rats. Half were given BPA laced products and the control group has not given BPA. Just being exposed to the chemical for 3 consecutive days, the rat became lethargic, sensitive to loud noises and light, was easily startled and showed signs of suffering from headaches.

These findings combined with our results suggest that a clinical trial to decrease BPA exposure and levels in migraine sufferers…may reduce headache frequency and/or severity, revealing strategies that may increase the quality of life of migraines.”
