BPA (Bisphenol A) is a plastic and resin ingredient used to make a wide variety of plastic goods and to line metal food and drink cans. It is allowed in unlimited amounts in consumer products, drinking water, and food. This toxin has been assoicated with birth defects of the male and female reproductive systems. BPA is at unsafe levels in one of every ten servings of canned foods (11%) and one of every three cans of infant formula (33%). BPA is found in everything from baby bottles and water cooler jugs to bicycle helments, CDs, and inside lining of tin cans is associated with a number of health problems and diseases that are on the rise in the United States population, including breast and prostate cancers and infertility.
