Have you guys ever heard of bpa? I have heard of it a bit in passing, but I didn’t really know that much about it. I was watching Good Morning America this morning and they had a story on bpa and how the regulation amounts for the amount of bpa can be in a product are outdated. A new study just came out and they found two products – Dell Monte green beans and some soups to have the highest amounts of bpa. That scared me because I eat Dell Monte green beans all the time. In fact I had a can last night. I then heard that bpa can cause reproductive issues. I kept listening and they only really talked about young children and their development.
Afterwards, I went on the net and started googling a bit. I found that research suggests that “BPA can interfere with further development of uterine cells and the way they change in preparation for possible pregnancy, and that exposure to BPA may prevent the embryo from attaching to the uterus.” In addition, it can affect women going through ivf. I don’t want to be a fear monger, especially since all the articles I have read seem to be quoting the same study, but it really makes me think. Maybe I should stop eating so many canned vegetables and go with a different packaging or fresh.
