Ever wonder what BPA-free means on the front of your favorite canned foods? BPA is a chemical (similar to estrogen) that is used to line the inside of metal cans. Look for labels that state BPA-free especially on canned foods that contain high acid type foods such as tomatoes or citrus, because they can cause BPA to leak into the contents of the can.
