Our Food, More Dangerous Than We Thought?

The New York Times has reported, a chemical called bisphenol A, or BPA, is found in 92% of the population. This chemical happens to be the cause for many diseases such as breast cancer, obesity, malformed genitalia in both male and female children, and many other ailments.

Even though, this chemical has been banned in many other countries such as Canada, where it was deemed hazardous. The Food and Drug Administration, is doing studies on this matter, however multiple test have been conducted on rats. The testing on rats have proven that BPA will cause complications with pregnancy and the breast feeding of children under 2 years of age.

BPA is usually found in canned food, the chemical is usually sprayed on the inside of cans, the Consumer Reports magazine issued an article in which it listed Progresso vegetable soup, Campbell’s condensed chicken noodle soup and Del Monte Blue Lake cut green beans.
