BIsphenol A, or BPA, is a chemical that is often found in baby bottles and even infant formula cans.
According to the National Toxicology Program (NTP), it acts on the brain like a hormone, causing behavioral and developmental problems, early puberty in girls and changes in the prostate and breasts of those exposed. The problem is, we’re all exposed to it—in a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 95% of subjects had BPA in their system.

It’s today’s big launch, and Latina tested it out just for you! It was no easy task; the Wii Fit turns your videogaming system into a lean, mean workout machine. It looks innocent enough when you open the surprisingly small box—a game disc that works with a standard Wii controller and a white Balance Board that you stand on to do your exercises—but boy do those little pieces pack a big punch. Just pop the game into the system, plug in the board and get ready to use your television to get in shape.

Why did you decide to get involved with the Liz Claiborne Love is Not Abuse Campaign?
I was definitely willing to be a part of this initiative because, I felt like I really wanted to be a role model. I wanted to use my title as a platform to branch out and inspire and empower teens. I’ve always found it as not only would it be a healing process for me but, also for others who are going through this. I can save somebody’s life by being a part of this.
