Canned BPA

Think twice befog sipping soda or eating soup that comes in a can. A recent study by Harvard School of Public Health researchers discovered that people that ate one serving of canned food daily for five days had significantly elevated levels of bisphenol-A (BPA), an endocrine disrupter sometime found in plastic bottles, that also lines most food and drink cans. Studies have linked high urine levels of BPA to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other health conditions. The spike in BPA levels recorded by the Harvard researchers was one of the highest seen in any study.
