Canned foods linked to BPA risk in new study

Thursday, June 30, 2016

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- You've probably heard about about the chemical BPA, which is the chemical Bisphenol A, and can be found in canned foods.

A new study not only confirms that there is a health risk, but also details which foods have the highest risk.

The study, published in the journal Environmental Research, suggests canned soup and pasta can expose people to higher concentrations of BPA, than canned vegetables and fruit.

Canned soup is the overall worst offender.

For decades, BPA has been widely used in products such as the inside lining of cans to prevent erosion.

Studies have linked BPA to fertility problems in men and women.
