Over the past few years many new mother's have become cautious when buying products for their young children, especially when it comes to BPA.
New mother Celeste Sexton says she's switching everything to get rid of plastic that might have BPA, "I've started using glass canning jars for snack containers, stuff like that."
The chemical is often used in plastic products, but the new research, out of Stanford University, suggests the chemical, that the FDA says is safe, may not be that harmless.
Celeste says, "Once I figured out how bad it was I started watching the labels. Making sure to try and get things that don't have it in there."
According to the president of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, research has shown negative effects on fertility, but this new study extends risks to miscarriages and even fertility in males as well.
Stores like Circle Me Inc. in Lincoln is one shop that gives mothers more natural options.
Manager Lisa Millard says Circle Me is trying to support the natural family which she says "is more and more of society these days. Everybody's trying to get the chemicals out of the products they use."
The lead researcher says while the results of her study shouldn't cause alarm for everyone, it is far from reassuring for newly pregnant women with histories of miscarriages.
Still, Lisa at Circle Me says it wouldn't hurt to be cautious.
"I think, anything that's plastic, you always have to double check that it is BPA free," says Millard.
