During the early stages of life, proper hormonal balance is essential for adequate growth and development. Bisphenol A  (BPA ), an estrogen-mimicker, can offset the hormonal balance of your body leading to conditions such as cancer and early puberty. Therefore, it is quite disturbing that a new study conducted by the Breast Cancer Fund has found that BPA is highly present in 6 different canned foods marketed specifically towards children.
The 6 canned goods that the study identified, along with the measure of BPA contamination measured in parts per billion (ppb), are as follows:
The researchers concluded the study by discussing the health implications of BPA-laced food products that are being consumed by children nationwide:
“BPA in laboratory studies has been linked to increased risks for breast cancer, prostate cancer, early puberty,” said Gretchen Lee Salter, policy manager at the Breast Cancer Fund.
In January of 2010, even the US Food and Drug Administration reported concerns  over BPA contamination. In a statement, the agency said that it was “taking reasonable steps to reduce human exposure” within the national food supply.
The presence of BPA is not limited to childhood food products, however. Another study found BPA to be present in 18 out of 20 most popular food cans:
