BPA is a toxic chemical and it's banned, right? 
Not exactly.  Health Canada and the US FDA only banned BPA in the manufacturing of baby bottles. Granted, this is a fantastic first step but there are no restrictions on BPA in food containers yet. There is also no restriction on the use of BPS or BPF which are 2 lesser know hormone-disruptors used to replace BPA in creating 'BPA-Free' products.  This marketing tactic makes us feel safer, but studies show that we are not any safer.  
Here's a simple illustration to highlight which household products contain hormone-disrupting chemicals, how these chemicals get into your food, and simple ways to avoid it.
