Canned Tomatoes The expert: The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Unfortunately, acidity a prominent characteristic of tomatoes causes BPA to leach into your food.
Studies show that the BPA in most people's body exceeds the amount that suppresses sperm production or causes chromosomal damage to the eggs of animals. Choose tomatoes in glass bottles which do not need resin liningssuch as the brands Bionaturae and Coluccio.
Corn-Fed Beef The expert: Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms and author of half a dozen books on sustainable farming The problem: Cattle evolved to eat grass, not grains.
But farmers today feed their animals corn and soybeans, which fatten up the animals faster for slaughter. More money for cattle farmers and lower prices at the grocery store means a lot less nutrition for us. A recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA and researchers from Clemson University found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid CLAcalcium, magnesium, and potassium; lower in inflammatory omega-6s; and lower in saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease.
Buy grass-fed beef, which can be found at specialty grocers, farmers' markets, and nationally at Whole Foods. It's usually labeled because it demands a premium, but if you don't see it, ask your butcher.
Microwave Popcorn The expert: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid PFOAin the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from UCLA.
In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer.
Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize—and migrate into your popcorn. DuPont and other manufacturers have promised to phase out PFOA by under a voluntary EPA plan, but millions of bags of popcorn will be sold between now and then.
Pop natural kernels the old-fashioned way: For flavorings, you can add real butter or dried seasonings, such as dillweed, vegetable flakes, or soup mix.
Nonorganic Potatoes The expert: Root vegetables absorb herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides that wind up in soil. In the case of potatoes—the nation's most popular vegetable—they're treated with fungicides during the growing season, then sprayed with herbicides to kill off the fibrous vines before harvesting.
After they're dug up, the potatoes are treated yet again to prevent them from sprouting. Buy a conventional potato in a store, and try to get it to sprout.
They have separate plots where they grow potatoes for themselves without all the chemicals. Washing isn't good enough if you're trying to remove chemicals that have been absorbed into the flesh.
Farmed Salmon The expert: David Carpenter, MD, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany and publisher of a major study in the journal Science on contamination in fish. Nature didn't intend for salmon to be crammed into pens and fed soy, poultry litter, and hydrolyzed chicken feathers.
As a result, farmed salmon is lower in vitamin D and higher in contaminants, including carcinogens, PCBs, brominated flame retardants, and pesticides such as dioxin and DDT.
According to Carpenter, the most contaminated fish come from Northern Europe, which can be found on American menus.A total of 85 candidates took the Mid-Year MUET.
