(NaturalNews) The Breast Cancer Fund recently tested 12 brand name canned soup and pasta products and found bisphenol A, or BPA, in all of them. BPA is a hormone-mimicking toxin that also has recently been found to impact our DNA and to kill off female ovarian cells in a way that may cause Down Syndrome and fertility problems in future generations. While BPA shouldn't be in any of us, children are thought to be the most susceptible and the soups and pastas tested were marketed toward children.
In the testing, 34 to 148 parts per billion of BPA were found in the soups and 10 to 34 ppb in the pastas. A few months ago, the FDA also found BPA in 71 of 78 canned goods they tested. The FDA also tested different types of foods, including canned tuna and vegetables, and in these foods they found much higher levels of BPA - ranging from 300 ppb to more than 700 parts per billion.
Some research shows that BPA is eliminated quickly from the body, but the problem with this research is that it looks at it from a one-time dose situation, as opposed to a more true to life repeated exposure situation. And with continual exposure, it tends to accumulate.
Canned foods are also not the only foods contaminated with BPA; it's also in plastic wrapped food products. And according to Environmental Working Group research, it's in the blood of 9 out of 10 infants at birth.
Cheryl Rosenfeld and her colleagues from the University of Missouri, Columbia looked at BPA exposure from a different angle and tested mice with a more true to life scenario. They fed these mice food laced with a little BPA each day and found that with chronic dietary exposure, the animals exhibited "the potential to bioaccumulate BPA over time." Then Rosenfeld tells us that there's no reason to expect the human body would respond any differently.
The researchers also found that BPA absorbs in the body in a greater degree when it is consumed with food, rather than taken as a one-time dose without food.
"What we found," Rosenfeld said, "is that when animals are exposed through the diet, they actually show increased absorption of BPA" as opposed to when they get a single larger dose.

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.
Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them. Here's a little from the upcoming book... In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters. A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them." Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them. In Numbers 1:1 – 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old. In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name. Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased... In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean. Kim's book Cleaning Up! is here http://www.cleaningupcleanse.com.
