For many, a bowl of hot soup is often a go-to, daily meal of choice. However, alarming new research from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) suggests that our favorite can of soup may actually contain far more than just the usual amount of beef and vegetables.

Given the results of an HSPH study, researchers now contend that canned soup contains a generous dose of bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that may cause reproductive problems in humans. In the study, a group of volunteers who consumed one serving of canned soup each day for five days had a 1,000 percent increase in urinary BPA concentrations compared to those individuals who consumed only fresh soup daily for five days.

While previous studies have linked BPA levels to adverse health effects, none have determined exactly how people are being being exposed to the dangerous chemical. The results of HSPH’s research is the first of its kind to truly quantify BPA levels in humans after the ingestion of canned foods. As a result, the study was recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
