New study links BPA exposure in pregnancy and behavior problems in young girls

BPA is a chemical that is found in everything from water bottles to cans of peas. Now researchers believe that the chemical could be causing behavioral problems in young girls. 

A new study published in the journal Pediatrics found that girl toddlers exposed to BPA before they were born exhibited worse behavior at age three than those that didn't.

Ali Velshi and Alina Cho talk this morning with CNN Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen to discuss the study's findings, and get some tips for how pregnant mothers can protect their children from BPA.
