bpa present in most canned food, groups allege
According to A report released today by the environmental organization, A, more commonly known as BPA, exists in almost all canned foods, which says ubiquitous chemicals pose A threat to health, especially for babies and pregnant women.
BPA is present in a thin plastic lining that protects the surface of a metal food container.
A coalition claiming to be the national working group on safe markets conducted laboratory tests on 50 canned food samples from 19 countries in the United StatesS.
United States and Canada
Of the 50 people, 46 contain at least some BPA.
The median is 35 servings per billion, but some foods are much higher, and a can of Del Monte mung beans is 1,140 servings per billion. Bisphenol-
A is called an endocrine disruptor, which means it has the potential to influence the hormones-chemical signals-that guide the body through A range of processes.
In animal studies, researchers linked BPA to various developmental problems, from behavioral problems to increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
It is not clear whether BPA is harmful to human body.
As early as 1963, the FDA announced it was safe, but recently a scientific re-evaluation was conducted.
The National Toxicology Program now says the effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate are \"somewhat worrying\" in developing fetus, baby and child \".
On January, the FDA issued guidelines urging parents to minimize infant exposure through bottles and feeding cups, but did not say there was a clear risk of injury.
Biologist Pete Myers, who has studied the effects of BPA, said that the baby bottles that caused the alarm were less than 30 out of a billion, lower than the number of canned foods announced on Tuesday.
Miles is the chief scientist in the private sector.
The funded environmental health science group, based in Charlottsville, Virginia, has written several articles criticizing BPA, including an editorial in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
Although the process is still under review, EPA has also taken steps to further study and possibly limit BPA.
Miles said the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences is funding a $30 million BPA study, with the first round expected to take place as early as this summer.
Research into animals and other studies involving human cell tissue suggest that BPA may inhibit the production of a hormone that protects heart disease, the lipid-linked hormone, Miles said.
His biggest concern is that a pregnant woman took BPA and passed it on to a developing fetus.
\"There are some signs that it may be concentrated on the fetus.
\"This is definitely not something the fetus is protected from,\" Miles said . \".
\"There are a few [
Health issues with BPA
But the most worrying thing for me is the diabetes and heart disease that is caused during infancy or in the womb.
The FDA declined to comment on Tuesday\'s report.
The Grocery Manufacturers Association and several canned goods manufacturers said Tuesday that biphenol a is not a safety issue.
However, both Del Monte and Conagra said they were exploring alternatives to BPA in can liners.
ConAgra told CNN, \"as part of our ongoing commitment to delivering quality products that meet or exceed consumer expectations, we have been looking for new and better ways to package our products.
This includes finding a safe and effective replacement tank liner that does not use BPA.
Editor\'s note: Medical News is a popular but sensitive subject rooted in science.
We receive a lot of comments on this blog every day;
Not all of them are released.

Believe it or not, everything, I mean everything you put in your mouth is toxic. Even WATER.
Even pure steamed water.
Drink enough and it will kill you! !
One point I would like to make clear here is the amount of anything that is harmful to us. Down a 1 oz.
No problem drinking wine.
I drank a bottle of 750 ml. . . .
You may have died.
Get a good night\'s sleep and come to an Ambien.
Take 30 bottles. . . .
You will sleep forever.
Whatever the substance is, it\'s all about the number of people.
I remember one day, the lab mouse was fed 100X normal amount of artificial candy and then got cancer. Well, DUH. . . I wonder why? ? ?
Anyone has thought about the amount of plastic bags and plastic wrap used every day in a regular home, not to mention the plastic bags your food/bev has received.
This will make the can look like the way to go! Bon Appetite!
KVM, I also have palpitations and they stopped when I stopped drinking a diet soda with caffeine.
Not sure if it\'s caffeine or Aspen sweet, but there\'s no other change in my diet.
I have reviewed data from two independent studies, one being testing industrial chemicals in a randomly selected population in California (
Take it all in)
One in Maine
Subject of evidence).
It is surprising to see a high level of all chemicals including BPA.
A high school athlete in Maine, a young lady, whose BPA level is 10 times the national average, drank a lot of bottled water.
If everyone is tested, people will be surprised to find the level of chemicals in their bodies.
We want to know why our bodies react to different diseases!
Where is industry testing and providing data on the causal relationship of its chemicals to humans?
Because most industrial chemicals are not designed to be ingested, absorbed or inhaled, these industries are not held accountable.
The standard answer we have heard from them is \"there is no scientific evidence to prove the claim\", all of which is to prevent large-scale litigation.
The government also doesn\'t rely on industry to push it, so nothing is done until it proves that there is a negative effect on the dioxin.
If everyone is tested for industrial chemicals, the people of this country will be angry!
Has anyone heard of statistics?
They tested 50 cans. 50.
If every American buys 10 cans a year (
This is a huge undervaluation, I\'m sure)
Then there are 3 billion cans a year.
I didn\'t run the numbers, but I bet the 92% correlation (46/50)
Less than 1% of confidence.
That is to say, there is a 99% chance that the data is just random noise.
It doesn\'t matter if you want to make an informed decision to rule out certain products, but you can never make policy choices based on random noise and you are not afraid.
It\'s like sampling a pixel on a TV screen that shows white noise, and drawing the conclusion that the whole screen is black based on your results.
There is no point in this measurement, and normally this is completely wrong.
This means that BPA may be present in cans, so appropriate statistical studies are required. But that\'s it.
When we live in Sierra Water Co. (
Tell me their company sent water to the same company in the White House)
We received water from 3 to 5 gallons of thick glass bottles.
We purchased a water cooler that allows you to place a 5 gallon glass bottle inside a lower cabinet door instead of lifting a 5 gallon glass bottle full of water and reversing it to the top of the device.
Now, we are no longer the place where Sierra Water serves us, so we have to buy 2-
We don\'t like 1/2 gallons of spring or running water in plastic containers.
Before arriving at the store and being sold, how long has the water been in the plastic container.
We also purchased more than 5 gallons at a time because we used it too fast because we only provided good water to pets.
Why not go back to the beautiful glass quarry to hold the tank and Pinot the glass top and rubber seal that my mother used (now Antiques).
I also have some glass jars from my mother and some canned rubber seals (
Sure, it won\'t be good to seal in the box after 50 years)
To be frank, I don\'t like the look in some of the cans I open, which are very discolored, some have tomatoes in them, and I don\'t dare to use garbage processors or discard garbage.
There is wax in the milk box so that milk does not come into contact with plastic, so wax may be required in all plastic containers, including freezing and storing plastic containers.
I have bought a glass freezer before but can\'t find it anymore.
If you freeze it once with your glass can, it is not safe to use them in the pressure cooker next time;
They can break the content that must be thrown away.
If you do this, you have to keep the glass tank for freezing (
If they are packed too full, they may burst in the fridge as these glass jars seem to get thinner and thinner every year!
I\'m worried about my dog right now.
I used to buy dog food from a whole company that said their dog food was a \"human class\" can, so I bought their dog food where it was sold, but now we\'re talking about this \"human class\" tank that contains BPA chemicals.
Because this is a big selling point for the whole pet food company.
\"Human class\" cans, I would like to know how safe the cans of other natural and overall pet food companies are, how about cheap dog/cat cans
3 times less than natural or overall.
An article from one of the people included in this report says that people live longer than before, but I ask if they have a better quality of life? ?
Young people today are faced with a variety of health problems, including more cancer than ever before, and I believe that when someone says that people live longer in general, maybe they are, but they are suffering, and families/relatives are under pressure from young people with many health problems, even though many cancers have been relieved for some time, it is still a concern and stress for those who want to know every day if the cancer will recur.
Yes, big pharmaceutical companies and doctors prescribed pills after pills for everything in the Sun (
Most of these diseases or hormone deficiencies did not exist a few years ago)
, Some life is extending, but wouldn\'t it be better to stop all chemical spraying and kill bugs with natural things (
There are some natural things that can be used to get the same results as chemicals.
All of these chemicals are put into the food to achieve a very long shelf life.
I don\'t even use cookie jar (
I have some decoration on my shelf)
, But who wants to make homemade cookies without preservatives and have them sit in the cookie jar for a few weeks.
Real food starts to deteriorate after a few minutes of baking or cooking.
By the way, my M. D.
A few years ago, the doctor told me not to plastic surgery (
I even sold all my Tupperware collections in my garage sale).
Then I said, doctor, how my food was frozen or stored.
He said that you buy wax paper, wrap the food with wax paper, then cover it with heavy foil, freeze and mark it on foil with a frozen pen so you know what\'s inside. When M. D.
I am sure the doctors will give such advice, they know what effect the chemicals will have on the body.
When I have experience visiting a doctor
At the Contrares cancer clinic in prayuz, Mexico, in one of his lectures, he said, \"You Americans don\'t know what all the salt and sugar you use tastes like \";
The next suggestion is to go home and eat at Nat\"U-RALLY (Naturally)
But that doctor\'s English pronunciation is like this. Family members sometimes say to each other, \"We have to go back and do what the doctor does\"
Contrares told us to \"eat Nat-U-Rally as much as possible \".
This should never be.
It\'s not material in your life.
As the elderly, we go back and think about why there is no professor from the beginning of primary school to keep healthy through proper diet.
