If you have given up using plastic food storage containers to avoid BPA you should check out this abstract. A non-profit group had 19 different canned foods tested for BPA and all came back positive with the highest levels in green beans and soups. Sounds to me like yet another reason to avoid canned foods when possible. While I can’t live without canned tomatoes, I do think I can give up almost everything else that comes in a can.
If the FDA has set a “cumulative exposure daily intake”, since we all know how slowly they act, that says to me I don’t want any exposure. The fact that I found the most troubling about this article was that two products that were advertised as packed in “BPA-free cans” came back with BPA. One of those foods was Eden brand Baked Beans. Argggh!
I don’t know about any of you, but I am going to be more diligent to avoid canned foods going forward when possible.
