Can food is the new plastic (or actually worst)

This is sad. I learned about BPA (Bisphenol A) in canned food. The amount of BPA in canned food is twice more than plastic! I don't really eat canned food, but I bought some ingredient in can like coconut milk (in Thailand we just make it fresh from coconut). Even the organic canned food has BPA. It comes with the cans.

BPA links to hormone imbalances, including breast and prostate cancer, early puberty and changes in brain structure, particularly for exposures during key points of fetal or early neonatal development.

P.S. if you are going to cook curry, use coconut milk that comes in paper boxes. Or milk it
from fresh coconut if you can get some. I know I will from now on.
