    A recent study of 1,455 people shows that exposure to higher levels of BPA raises the chance a human will develop cardiovascular disease and diabetes.  This research is the first large-scale study of bisphenol A in human beings.  This study adds to evidence from animal tests that the compound may be contributing to an array of diseases and other health problems.  For the 1,455 U.S. adults tested, the more BPA in their urine, the higher their rates of heart disease and diabetes, according to research by a British team of scientists published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. They also found a link between abnormal liver enzymes in people and BPA, suggesting that the chemical alters how the liver functions.
