A Small Request

You may have read my previous post on preservatives. Not included in that list are other toxins that are in the packaging that our food comes in contact with. One of those which has received attention lately is bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that is used to make plastic containers and to line metal cans (including baby formula cans). Research has shown that some of it may leach into the food that comes in contact with it, especially acidic foods, like canned tomatoes. Research has also shown some evidence linking BPA exposure to various health concerns, including neurological problems, endocrine disruption (this involves hormones, especially problematic in fetuses and infants), insulin resistance and cancer.
