Stay away from eating too much canned soup, warns a new Harvard research study, or you’ll risk high levels of bisphenol-A (BPA) in your body.
BPA is an endocrine-disrupting chemical, which is used to harden plastics, and can be found in the liners of metal food cans. Numerous research studies have linked BPA exposure to causing prostate cancer in men, breast cancer, infertility problems, early puberty, ADHD, and obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and numerous other health problems. The CDC reports that 9 out of 10 Americans have detectable levels of BPA in their bodies.
There’s no denying that BPA is bad for you, so you definitely want to lower your risk of exposure by eating fresh ingredients whenever possible. [Read more…] about New BPA Study: Eating Canned Soup Spikes BPA Exposure by 1,0000 Percent
