1. Canned tomatoes
Canned tomatoes are tomatoes that have been peeled and packed in a can, along with a liquid such as juice or puree. They are typically less expensive than fresh tomatoes and are available year-round. Some people prefer the taste and texture of canned tomatoes to fresh tomatoes, especially when they are not in season. Did you know that fresh tomatoes are very good for your health and even help you prevent cancer? Pay attention! This is not the case with canned tomatoes! How is this possible? Most cans are provided with a thin layer on the inside, which is usually made of bisphenol A (BPA). Research shows that BPA affects the hormonal activities in your body and the way the genes function in your brain. Because tomatoes are so sour, this is extra dangerous! The acid releases the toxic chemical from the can and leaks into the tomatoes. BPA shows a connection with different types of cancer, heart disease and fertility problems. Our advice: put canned tomatoes aside right away and choose tomatoes in glass or fresh tomatoes instead.
