1. Canned tomatoes
2. Processed meats
3. Margarine
4. Vegetable oils (for cooking, i.e. heated up)
5. Microwaved popcorn
6. Fresh produce known for high pesticide contamination
7. Table salt
8. Unfermented soy products
9. Artificial sweeteners

Just a re-cap on some of the food stuffs we shouldn't put into our bodies- I didn't know about the microwave popcorn- another excuse to chuck the microwave out the window :chuckle: I might also add dairy to the list, in particular lactose as well as wheat as both can have negative effects on our systems.

Reference - Tinned tomatoes, it's not tomatoes per se, it's tinned food in general that contain bpa, nothing peculiar to tomatoes.

bpa is a container issue, not a tomato issue.
Bisphenol A

Baby Bottle
Happy news! The chemical BPA was found in very few baby bottles and sippy cups in a 2013 study in Washington State.

Bisphenol A, or BPA, is a chemical used to make a hard clear plastic called polycarbonate, some sealants, and thermal paper such as the paper used to print cash register receipts.

Most of us living in the United States have BPA in our bodies, but the human health effects are unknown. Our main sources of BPA are household products. Today, fewer products contain BPA than in 2010 because of efforts by Washington State, federal agencies and some product manufacturers.

What products have BPA?

BPA enters our bodies mainly through food and beverages that have been in contact with polycarbonate.
•Canned foods, because most metal cans are lined with a sealant containing BPA.
• Sports water bottles may contain BPA if bought before July 2012.
• Baby bottles, sippy cups and other containers designed for children 3 years old and younger may contain BPA if bought before July 2011.
•BPAOther hard, clear plastic food or beverage containers. This symbol means it may contain BPA.
•Cash register receipts.

BPA-free products
• BPA CartonBaby bottles, sippy cups and other containers for children 3 years old and younger, if purchased in Washington state after July 1, 2011.
• Sports bottles up to 64 oz., if purchased in Washington state after July 1, 2012.
• Glass and stainless steel containers with no plastic linings.
•Brick-shaped cardboard cartons (like juice boxes) used for food packaging. Cartons made by Tetra Pak or SIG Combibloc do not contain BPA. Look for those names on the bottom of the carton.
•A few canned food producers voluntarily use BPA-free linings. Some put “BPA-free” on the label but many do not. So, it is hard for shoppers to identify BPA-free canned food. Producers are looking for safer linings.
•Plastic containers labeled with a 1, 2 or 5.


The concerns about BPA

Human exposure to BPA is widespread. A survey of the U.S. population found BPA in 93 percent of urine samples from people age 6 and older. 1

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Toxicology Program agree that recent studies provide reason for some concern about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. 2

Reduce your exposure to BPA

Find tips to reduce infant’s exposure to BPA.

The best way to reduce your BPA exposure is to avoid household products that contain BPA.

Food choices:
• Eat fresh and frozen foods instead of foods stored in cans.
• Purchase foods packaged in glass containers, ceramic containers or cardboard brick-shaped cartons. Juice boxes are an example of a cardboard brick-shaped carton. Look on the bottom to see if it was made by Tetra Pak or SIG Combibloc.

Food containers already at home:
• Replace pre-2011 baby bottles, sippy cups, water bottles and other hard, clear plastic food storage containers. 3
• Throw away cracked or scratched plastic containers. Recycle them if possible (ask your local recycling program) or put them in garbage.
• Use glass or unlined stainless steel water bottles.
• Keep plastic containers labeled with a 1, 2 or 5; they do not contain BPA or other plastic chemicals of concern. BPA
• Dispose of plastic containers labeled with a 7 inside the recycle symbol. Although not all 7 plastics contain BPA, it’s not easy to tell which contain BPA and which don’t.

Safer practices for food containers made of polycarbonate:
• Use polycarbonate plastic for cold storage and for non-food items.
• Heat food in glass, ceramic or stainless steel containers. In polycarbonate containers, heat leaches more BPA into foods and liquids.
• Wash polycarbonate containers by hand instead of in the dishwasher to prevent scratching. Scratching releases more BPA.

Safer practices for receipts
• Wash your hands after handling receipts
• Consider putting gloves on before handling a lot of receipts

Reference bpa (uk Government information)

Suggest this webpage is read

www.food.gov.uk/science/bpa

IE....
Is BPA in food harmful?

Minute amounts of BPA can transfer from packaging into food and drinks, but independent experts have advised that these levels of exposure are not considered to be harmful. Independent studies have shown that, even when consumed at high levels, BPA is rapidly absorbed, detoxified, and eliminated from humans and, therefore, is not a health concern.

For more information see 'External sites' to read the previous European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) Opinion on BPA.
