That’s disquieting news for the 93 percent of Americans who already test positive for the toxin. Reduce your exposure by limiting your intake of canned foods and learning what the numbers on plastics really mean.

Thanks, Sarah. While I had the info about the types of plastics, I didn't have the details regarding the canned food.
