#4: Canned food, especially tomatoes
Canned vegetables tend to be jam packed with added salt as part of the preservative process, and fruits are often canned in straight sugar syrup. That is problematic in itself, but even worse is the fact that the cans are lined with a chemical called BPA. A known hormone disrupter that has been linked to cancer, BPA leaches into the food that comes in contact with it.
The effect is amplified with foods that are naturally acidic, so tomatoes are especially risky to eat from a can.
Instead – Eat fresh or frozen produce, or at least look for cans that are low-sodium and labeled BPA-free.
