In Your Kitchen

Even if you are careful, you may be unintentionally introducing toxics into your diet. Avoid these two common-kitchen hazards:

?Bringing leftovers for lunch to save money? Check your plastic container. Hard plastics found in baby bottles and other plasticware may contain the chemical bisphenol A (BPA), which has been linked to serious health concerns such as breast cancer and heart disease.

?While you are at it, check your fridge and pantry for mercury. Larger fish, like tuna, swordfish and shark, can have high levels of mercury, which is especially harmful to unborn babies and young children.
