We knew it.
BPA exposure is particularly of concern for pregnant women, for babies, and for children. Other reports have focused on BPA leaching from baby bottles and polycarbonate containers, so for this study  imagined a pregnant woman in her 20s, of average build (71 kg or 156.5 lbs) as the individual eating the meals  put together from different products tested. [The study] found that, just from eating the foods below, she could easily raise her BPA intake to levels known to cause health problems in animals (see detailed summary on page 10). For example:
- By eating a serving of canned peaches with breakfast, a can of ravioli for lunch, having a snack of a can of chicken noodle soup, chili for dinner, and using coconut milk in a dessert she could ingest 75.4 μg, or 1.06 μg/kg bodyweight of BPA;
- By eating a serving of canned peaches with breakfast, a can of lentil soup for lunch, and making tuna casserole with canned tuna, peas, cream of mushroom soup and vegetable broth for dinner, followed by bananas in canned coconut milk for dessert, a woman could ingest 87.28 μg, or 1.23 μg/kg bodyweight of BPA through canned foods alone; and
- By eating no canned goods in the morning and afternoon, and just one can of soda and a single serving of green beans at dinnertime, a woman could ingest 138.19 μg, or 1.95 μg/kg bodyweight of BPA.
