Text version here. From the story:
"Tests conducted on the food cans for CTV News and The Globe and Mail shows similar or higher levels of bisphenol A than in baby bottles.
While baby bottles leach about 6 parts per billion of bisphenol A (BPA), the exclusive tests of food cans show:
- A can of children's ravioli leached 6 parts per billion.
- A can of peas and carrots leached 7 parts per billion.
- A can of tomato juice leached 14 parts per billion.
This testing also included two beer cans and found they leached between 8 and 9 parts per billion of BPA. As well, a can of apple juice leached 18 parts per billion. "
Why am I not surprised?
I don't use canned sauces, but I DO use canned beans and fruit and occasionally purchase a can of apple juice. Are we going to have to use glass for everything?
