Take Action on BPA

In yesterday's post, I told you about the SSI/BCF study re BPA in food, and about the 60% decrease in the body burden the families realized when they stopped using canned goods. It caught your attention, right? You're concerned, no?

Think about that - sixty percent! Over a lifetime, that could amount to lot less disease. It's a no-brainer: get BPA out of canned food, get BPA out of people.

So what are America's top canned food manufacturers doing to get rid of BPA in their products?

The Breast Cancer Fund wants to find out and push these companies to protect our health. Would you be willing to take a minute to ask Campbell Soup Co., Del Monte Foods and General Mills (maker of Progresso, Cascadian Farm and Muir Glen) what they're doing to get BPA out of their food packaging and out of our bodies? It's a fill-in form, so easy and can be very effective.

Let's band together to reduce all Americans' BPA levels by going straight to the makers of canned foods and asking them to stop using BPA.
