Bisphenol A (BPA) is a synthetic estrogen found in the coatings of canned foods, including beans, fruits, veggies, and soups. While many companies have stopped using BPA in the epoxy coatings of their cans, some still use it. Plus, people have no way of knowing which canned foods have BPA-based coatings, so the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) analyzed 253 canned foods and found 78 brands that use it. On top of BPA, most canned vegetables have excess salt, corn syrup, processed oils, and preservatives.
