BPA directly linked to cancer (in mice)

dead-miceBPA is one of those chemicals that has caused a lot of fear in recent years…but also some uncertainty.  More and more though, it sounds like nasty stuff that’s best avoided (if possible).   A new study found a direct correlation between BPA consumption and the rate of cancer in mice (read more about the study here).  We’re lagging behind the rest of the world on this issue (the FDA still allows it), and unfortunately, its replacement, BPS, is pretty much an unknown, it may or may not have issues of its own.  So what can you do?  The same thing you do if you want to eat healthy overall.  Avoid prepared and processed foods.  Buy fresh ingredients and cook your own meals.  At least try to minimize your exposure to BPA.  You can read more about BPA over at Wikipedia.
