BPA And Your Blood Pressure

Most of you are aware of the concerns over the plastic additive Bisphenol-A.  (If  not, read our information on BPA) Adding to the mix of cautionary reports, a new study has found that eating food from BPA lined aluminum cans can cause your systolic blood pressure to spike 4.5 points.  Aluminum canned goods are lined with a plastic coating which contains BPA. This is meant to keep aluminum from leaching into the food.  But this causes BPA to leech into the food instead.  Your best bet? Eat fresh veggies whenever possible, and try to limit the consumption of canned and other plastic lines goods.
