Toxic Bisphenol A In Canned Foods And Plastics

It is highly recommended to use food safe storage containers such as glass and stainless steel while limiting the use of food storage containers that include a hormone disrupting chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA). This cancer causing chemical is found in the lining of canned foods, and plastic containers. Food stored in containers that contain BPA are troublesome because this toxic chemical can easily leach into the food causing health problems such brain damage, breast cancer, prostate cancer, cognitive decline and reproductive system damage.

Phthalates are another toxic chemical found in food containers. Click here for a comprehensive article on phthalates by James A. Ferrel MD
