BPA can adversely affect parenting behavior in mice

3 junio 2015

Biparental care of offspring occurs in only a minority of species. Studies have shown that maternal care can be negatively affected when females are exposed to BPA; however, no studies have shown how this chemical can affect maternal and paternal care. Researchers have used biparental California mice to prove that offspring born to parents who are exposed to BPA receive decreased parental care by both the mother and father.
