Where does the BPA come from in canned foods?

    BPA (Biphismol A) is a compound regularly used in the lining of plastics or cans. It’s meant to preserve stored food by putting a chemical wall between food and the metals or plastic components of containers that could ‘shed’ into food and contaminate it.

    However, in a glorious twist of irony, the BPA is of course now showing up in all kinds of stored food, mostly canned, and has proven to mimic certain human hormones in ways that disrupt normal endocrine functioning. Oops!
