Tin is found naturally in the environment at low levels. As a result, we can never completely avoid our exposure to it (5). But the consumption of canned foods and/or beverages is, by far, the biggest sources of toxic tin exposure in modern society. And while food containers that contain tin usually have a very fine layer of lacquer applied to prevent the tin from leeching into your food or drink, that “protective layer” may actually do more harm than good.
This layer is often loaded with Bisphenol A (or BPA), a chemical that can mimic human estrogen and is linked to both breast cancer and early puberty in women. In fact, when the Environmental Working Group tested canned food bought across America, they found BPA in more than half, and at levels they noted as being, “200 times the government’s traditional safe level of exposure for industrial chemicals” (10, 13). In short: consuming canned goods may put you at greater risk of BPA ingestion than drinking from plastic water bottles! Read More…

Iron toxicity is extremely dangerous, not only because of the long list of harmful effects it can have on your health – including death – but also because it is so commonly overlooked. And it targets every single man and postmenopausal woman.
The alarming, and even deadly, effects that toxic iron levels have on human health can be broken down into three primary categories. From these, all conditions subsequently stem (5):
- Deposits in body organs and tissues including the heart, brain, liver, pancreas, and joints
- Displaces vital nutrients
- Causes psychological effects
Iron builds up in the body quite easily because it is so important for survival. It transports oxygen to the body’s tissues via hemoglobin. So, when exposed to iron, most commonly in enriched flour and water, the body preferentially retains it and stores it in the body. Read more
