In the new study, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health compared people who were given canned vegetable soup for lunch each day with people who got vegetable soup made without any canned ingredients.
And they found that a couple hours after eating, the people who had canned soup had BPA levels in their urine that were about 12 times higher than the people who didn't.
Lovely. Read between the lines - BPA is an estrogen mimic, and that in turn can have all sorts of effects on the body. As the father of preteen daughters, I'll be sure to restrict my daughter's access to these products. Granted, the government still claims that these are in safe levels, but I for one don't trust that these limits are safe enough.
