BPA Canned Soup, The results of study conducted by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health revealed that consuming canned soup may increase one’s risk for exposure to bisphenol A (BPA), a plastics additive that is associated with several health issues.
The results of the study indicated that BPA concentrations in the urine of 75 volunteers, who consumed 12 ounces of vegetarian canned soup, were 1,221 percent higher when compared against levels measured after consuming soup made from fresh ingredients.
BPA is used in making polycarbonate plastic bottles and epoxy can linings. In a statement sent through e-mail, Harvard shared that BPA has been associated with vascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Karin Michels, senior author for the study, suggested that food companies consider eliminating BPA from can linings.
Lead author Jenny Carwile gave the following statement: “We’ve known for a while that drinking beverages that have been stored in hard plastics can increase the amount of BPA in your body… This study suggests that canned foods may be an even greater concern, especially given their wide use.”
