Healthy on the Hill – BPA and weight gain, is there a connection?

Healthy on the Hill – BPA and weight gain, is there a connection?

Bisphenol (BPA) is a very common chemical found in things like food and drink cans, plastic containers and paper receipts and tickets. Recent research showed that exposing human pancreatic cells to tiny amounts of BPA caused them to release nearly double the amount of insulin needed to metabolize a meal. What does this mean? Over time, this excess insulin could cause your body to store more calories as fat, which in turn leads to weight gain. YIKES! While most of us probably have some BPA lurking around in our bodies, there are ways to reduce your exposure to it. Consider these options:

1) Choose fresh foods over canned, if possible.

2) Reheat leftovers in non-plastic containers.

3) Order tickets on-line so that you can print them on your on BPA-free paper.
