BPA found in canned foods and juices

Earlier this week, I wrote a post about BPA (Bisphenol-A) being found in plastic bottles and food containers and its harmful effects on humans, it also being linked to causing aggressive behavior in children. Use of this chemical has been banned in Canada and in some parts of the US.

Now you don't have to look much further to get your daily dose of BPA - just open a can of soup or tuna! Tests recently performed by Consumer Reports showed traces of BPA in almost all of the 19 name-brand cans of soup, tuna, vegetables, and juice. There were even some cans labeled "BPA-free" that contained the chemical. And don't think your organic canned foods are safe either - the chemical showed up in some of those as well.
