Consuming Canned Foods Increases Toxic Exposure 1000 Fold

'Consuming a daily serving of canned food products has a more than 1,000% increase in urinary bisphenol A (BPA) concentrations compared with when the same individuals consumed fresh food daily. The study is one of the first to quantify BPA levels in humans after ingestion of canned foods.

The findings were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

In 2009, the North American Metal Packaging Alliance, a Washington-based trade group for can makers, said that “there is no readily available” alternative to BPA, which allows high temperature sterilization of canned food, preventing microbial contamination.'
