To the Editor: Dr Trasande and colleagues1 concluded that “Urinary [bisphenol A] BPA concentration was significantly associated with obesity in this cross-sectional study of children and adolescents. Explanations of the association cannot rule out the possibility that obese children ingest food with higher BPA content or have greater adipose stores of BPA.”
