Reducing Your Family’s BPA Exposure

Here’s another health benefit of cooking fresh food for your family’s dinner: reducing your exposure to the harmful chemical BPA, linked to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, early puberty in girls, obesity and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

According to a report released today by the nonprofit Breast Cancer Fund and the Silent Spring Institute (see press release here), cutting canned foods from your diet will reduce your BPA exposure (food packaging is believed to be one of the main sources of the chemical).

For more on the report, check out this Los Angeles Times story.
