BPA in Cans

I think most people have heard about the perils of BPA in our water bottles, baby bottles, etc. Bisphenal A (BPA) is a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to breast cancer, ADHD, immune system disruption and other health issues. Research supports it's negative effects enough that many companies have taken action to remove BPA from our drinking vessils. However, BPA still sneaks into various places. One place we still see BPA is in the lining of canned foods.

The 10 worst canned items in regard to BPA content include:

  1. Coconut milk
  2. Soup
  3. Meat
  4. Vegetables
  5. Meals (e.g. ravioli in sauce)
  6. Juice
  7. Fish
  8. Beans
  9. Meal replacement drinks
  10. Fruit
