Those who react to BPA with migraines are advised to avoid microwave trays, plastic bottles, canned goods and water coolers.

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.

The study states: “A previously performed study using a ‘fresh foods’ dietary intervention demonstrated a significant decrease in urinary BPA (66 per cent reduction) in patients after just three days. 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.”

Testing showed the rat’s brains were flooded with oestrogen, a synthetic mimic of the female hormone estrogen.
