Fact or myth....Helping you to live longer.

Fact or Myth? You Should Never Eat Tomatoes Stored in Can

Only forward this to your friends.

The problem with canned tomatoes is the cans themselves, which are lined with a resin that contains the synthetic estrogen bisphenol-A (BPA).
BPA canned foods has been conclusively linked to a disturbing array of serious health problems that include:
There already severe dangers of BPA canned foods are further multiplied when combined with tomatoes. That’s because tomatoes are acidic, and the acid breaks down BPA. Once broken down, BPA leaches out of the lining of cans and into your food — in health-harming amounts. bpa canned foods
According to Fredrick vom Saal, an endocrinologist at the University of Missouri who studies bisphenol-A, “You can get 50 mcg of BCA per liter out of a tomato can, and that’s a level that is going to impact people, particularly the young.”
The National Toxicology Program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has also warned that there is definite reason to be concerned about BPA canned foods. The Toxicology Program warns that the chemical may cause developmental problems in children’s brains and hormonal systems.
Adults are also at risk. A 2004 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found BPA present in the urine of 93% of those tested. Based on these findings, the CDC concluded that Americans are exposed to BPA at levels above the safety threshold set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
And in January 2010, even the notoriously permissive U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reversed its former position that public exposure to BPA presented no health concerns. As the Washington Post reported last year:
The [FDA]…now has concerns about health risks. Growing scientific evidence has linked the chemical to a host of problems, including cancer, sexual dysfunction, and heart disease.
If you love to cook with canned tomatoes and tomato sauces, choose those packaged in glass jars as a much safer alternative to tin cans.
