Individuals eat and drink food from cans and plastic bottles lined with a chemical called bisphenol A (BPA) on a daily basis. Now, a new report suggests that drinking from such containers could lead to increased blood pressure. Researchers found that systolic blood pressure increased by approximately 4.5 mmHg after consuming two canned beverages, compared with consuming two glass-bottled beverages. The authors believe the findings should be important to healthcare providers, policy writers, and the general public with regards to the possible heart risks associated with BPA. Study author Dr. Yun-Chul Hong concludes, “I suggest consumers try to eat fresh foods or glass bottle-contained foods rather than canned foods and hopefully, manufacturers will develop and use healthy alternatives to BPA for the inner lining of can containers.”
