BPA: It's in the Can
A report released Tuesday by the National Workgroup for Safe Markets (a national coalition of more than 17 public health and environmental health groups) tested 50 brand-name foods and found contamination in almost all of them. The study, called "No Silver Lining," tested brand-name canned items, including fish, fruits, vegetables, soups, and sodas, and found BPA in the food in 92 percent of the cans tested—46 out of 50 cans. BPA levels in some cans were higher than what the FDA allows.
