Step away from the canned pumpkin

it can hide a dangerous "ingredient." Bisphenol-A. BPA.

BPA lurks in canned soups and drinks. A new study may provide another reason to skip the canned pumpkin and cranberry sauce this Thanksgiving. People who ate one serving of canned food daily over the course of five days, the study found, had significantly elevated levels — more than a tenfold increase — of bisphenol-A, or BPA, a substance that lines most food and drink cans - NYTimes

Canned soup raises BPA level. Eating even moderate amounts of canned soup significantly increases exposure to Bisphenol-A according to a new study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The chemical BPA, suspected of causing damage to human health, is used in the interior lining of the vast majority of canned soups and vegetables - CNN

Canned soup increases Bisphenol A exposure: Harvard study. Exposure to a plastics additive that’s linked to health problems increases 13-fold when canned soup is eaten instead of soup made from fresh ingredients, according to a study by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health - Bloomberg

A potential danger on holiday table. Along with turkey gravy and pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, diners may also be getting a dose of bisphenol A, or BPA, a chemical that leaches from can linings and interferes with the body's hormones - Bergen County Record
