You can avoid exposure to BPA in several ways. [SOFT MUSIC]
One is you have to really pay attention when you eat canned goods. The great thing is that there is a little label that says
"BPA-free" when a can is BPA-free. So if there's no label, it's not BPA-free.
That means it has BPA in it, and stay away. But there are lots of other options, luckily.
You can get the same sorts of foods a lot of times in glass jars, like your stewed tomatoes. You can find that in glass jars.
Olives-- instead of canned olives, you can get it in the glass jar.
There's also the option of soups, for instance. Of course, there's lots of canned soups. But if you can't find a BPA-free can,
you can opt for the soups in the cardboard boxes. They look almost like those milk containers of the milk that doesn't need to be refrigerated.
So those would be good options, those boxes for soups, if you can't find BPA-free cans.
