Remember a few years back when everywhere you looked, you saw plastic bottles that advertised that they did not contain that chemical BPA. BPA has been linked with all kinds of health conditions including breast and prostate cancer, hyperactivity in children, weight gain, diabetes and possibly high blood pressure. Health Canada officially recognized it as a toxin back in 2010.
So, you might have thought – great, I’m free of that stuff ‘cause they don’t have it in plastic bottles anymore.
….not so fast.
You might be interested in testing that was just done of 200 canned items – 90% had BPA in them!
BPA is also still found on everything from store receipts to toys.
But the news is not all bad – Campbell’s has announced that by the middle of next year, it would be eliminating the chemical from all their products.
You can read more about all this HERE.
Way to go Campbell’s. Hopefully, other companies will follow in your footsteps.
