Story at-a-glance

  • Mice fed low doses of food contaminants like dioxin, PCB, bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates over the course of a lifetime experienced significant negative metabolic changes
  • The study suggests low doses of contaminants, even at levels normally considered to be without health impacts in humans, do in fact affect humans over the long term
  • When it comes to staying healthy, avoiding processed foods and replacing them with fresh, whole foods is important, as is sourcing your fresh foods from sustainable, responsible growers
