Exclamation Another reason to avoid energy drinks

The Enironment Reporter is reporting that the estrogen-mimicking chemical BPA, already banished from baby bottles and frowned upon in water jugs, has now shown up in significant levels in soft drinks.

Tests by Health Canada scientists revealed the highest levels were in energy drinks, the often caffeine-loaded beverages that have become popular with teenagers seeking a buzz and athletes chasing a quick pick-me-up. But the study also found the controversial compound in a wide variety of ginger ales, diet colas, root beers and citrus-flavoured sodas.

Bisphenol A was detected in 96 per cent of soft drinks tested, in quantities below regulatory limits. But a growing body of science suggests the chemical may have harmful effects at levels far below those limits

So if you don't want many boobies. Stay away from sodas and energy drinks!

That was on the news the other day but I thought they said you would have to drink 100 cans of pop a day to reach the recomended limit. I havn't actually read any real studies on it though
