Canned food lovers, beware (we're looking at you, Ted Cruz): New research shows that an alarming number of the cans used in canned foods—like soup, for instance—test positive for the chemical BPA, which has been linked to health problems such as cancer.
In a recent study, which was conducted by Canada's Environmental Defence group in conjunction with five U.S. companies—the U.S. Breast Cancer Fund; Campaign for Healthier Solutions; Clean Production Action; Ecology Center; and Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families’ Mind the Store Campaign—192 cans were tested for BPA-based epoxy resins. Of those cans, all of which were sourced from major North American retailers, 129, or 67 percent, tested positive.
