3. BPA (Bisphenol A)

This chemical is found in many plastics, especially in food containers, like those popular resealable storage bowls with colorful lids. It’s also used when making the linings for canned foods.

This chemical leeches into the food that you place in your container or whatever it is that the manufacturers have canned. Don’t believe this is true?

BPA is found in the bodies of 9 out of every 10 Americans.

This chemical is known to disrupt hormones and might cause problems with fertility. Your alternative? Use all natural glass containers whenever possible, or look for BPA free plastics. Those use the recycling code numbers 1, 2, or 5.
