BPA-free is BS, too!
I’ve reported this before, but this latest revelation—a moment of too-rare, (off-the-record) transparency has got me avoiding (when given the choice) anything stored in plastic, including all canned goods.
The full quote went something like this:
“BPA is the least of your worries…
…All cans are lined with dozens of different untested plastics. BPA, if anything, has been tested far more than the many other mystery plastics used to line cans. At least we know what it does.”
Ed’s note: This was a conversation among many, some months ago, and it only recently reared its head in my memory and struck home. If I have any facts wrong, or have left any facts out, let me know in comments below and I’ll amend.
A friend of mine, only 34, beautiful, a young mother of two, the epitome of health, was diagnosed with cancer just this month. It’s gone too far. We’re all surrounding ourselves, drowning in a sea of toxic plastics. Avoid plastic + food.
Buy glass. Buy bulk. And support companies that avoid plastics and applaud (though do not buy) the products from companies that are BPA-free (at least that’s something). If we start a movement, companies will come clean, and go green.
Because even if you aren’t a treehugging hippie, you care about your health. And if you don’t care about your health (some of us like to party!), you care about children’s health.
Watch this film. It’s actually fun, and will change your life.
Great video, especially the song (but do not support SIGG—they have a bad history re: integrity)
