Gender-bending’ chemical found in canned foods increases risk of heart disease and diabetes

Just five days of eating canned soup dramatically increases levels of hormone-mimicking bisphenol A. Scientists blame this increase on manufacturers using BPA in the lining of soup tins to prevent them from rusting.


BPA is an organic compound that can mimic the body’s own hormones and previous research has warned it can increase the risk of illnesses including heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
