Studies in rhesus monkeys suggests the plastic additive BPA may cause miscarriages and birth defects.

The monkeys, which have human like reproductive systems, were exposed to single daily doses of BPA.

Researchers say BPA damaged the chromosomes of developing eggs ... increasing the risk of fetal death or downs syndrome.

BPA also disrupted the egg development in female fetuses ... raising concern these girl babies could grow to have their own reproductive problems.
