You may be tipping the scales because of all the canned goods and hard plastic containers in your kitchen. The latter are sources of BPA, a toxin that can cause not only reproductive disorders and neurological disorders but, say researchers, also cause you to bulk up. People who are obese have up to 70% more BPA in their cells than normal weight adults. The FDA so far has refused to ban this troublesome environmental poison. It is also found in recycled paper, dental fillings, and cash register receipts.
