The 7 foods experts won't eat

Although these
foods don’t necessarily make up a "banned” list, as you head
into the holidays—and all the grocery shopping that comes with
it—their answers are, well, food for thought:
1. Canned Tomatoes
The problem: The resin linings of tin cans contain
bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments
ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and

the animals faster for slaughter. More money for cattle farmers
(and lower prices at the grocery store) means a lot less nutrition
for us.
3. Microwave Popcorn
The problem: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid
(PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds
that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent
study from UCLA.
4. Nonorganic Potatoes
5. Farmed Salmon
