So instead of buying canned mushrooms or pickles, maybe we can look for a bottled equivalent. What we can also do perhaps i...

I agree that its really inevitable to eat canned food. I remember when I was a student, me and my roommates would sometimes opt for canned tuna! Even those who cook meals use canned food. Say for example, mushroom soup. How are you going to cook mushroom soup without cream of mushroom? Is there any alternative? Well, I actually wouldn't know because I don't cook. Anyway. The point is, these canned good are also being used for cooking. If they are so dangerous as the article says, then wh...

Canned foods are convenient as you can keep them on your shelf for weeks to months without spoiling and they are quick to cook as you don't need to defrost it or the like.

I agree with Mark Edmon Tan that most of us eat canned food and processed food items as they are easy to prepare and take no time. Many times, when we are lazy or running short of time, we resort to the canned food items. But, I believe that we can apply the same to fruits. Whenever I am running short of time, I simply grab an apple and take a bite. Thank you ...

You know, I am not fond of canned foods, but it doesn't mean I DO NOT have it from time to time. I buy corned beef and luncheon meat, for days when I'm lazy to cook. And then there are cooking ingredients that come in cans and vacuum packed sealing, like tomato sauce, mushrooms, mushroom soup, etc. I've always known canned stuff is bad, but this perspective and "highlight" is even more concerning. I think I have to reorganize my brain if I want to steer clear of all of this...

Hmm. So it seems that there's a lot of toxic compounds in canned food. I usually avoid these being afraid of the chemical preservatives and uncertainty about sterilization process. Now I see there's a lot of other things too. Many of us take canned food thinking it safe and nutritious. But even with the best sterilization techniques applied, you can't get rid of the heavy metals of the cans. The BPA is produced in many metallic and plastic cans. When you are taking this food, you ar...

After reading this article, I will never eat canned goods ever again! Just kidding. I think that its is quite inevitable not to purchase these things especially when you live in the Philippines and have a daily hectic work schedule. Sometimes, I resort to eating canned food when I'm too lazy to prepare food for work. It's very convenient and some canned goods today are actually very tasty. But after reading this article, I am reminded once again of its harmful effects and I'll make a...
