Summer is here, what better time of year to kick your canned food habit?  The American Nurses Association, along with the Breast Cancer Fund, supports the removal of Bisphenol A (BPA) from the lining of metal food cans.  BPA, originally developed as a synthetic estrogen, can leach out of canned food linings and be ingested by consumers.  Many studies link BPA exposure to cancer, obesity , and behavioral disorders.  Visit www.breastcancerfund.org/kickthecanfor more tips and a personal pledge to decrease your exposure to BPA.  Want to know more about BPA legislation?  Visit http://capwiz.com/nursingworld/issues/bills/for more details on the Ban Poisonous Additives Act of 2011.
