When on the road I try to carry my own glass water jug,(http://www.truckerjugs.com) which I fill up from drinking fountains at truck stops, roadside springs, and rest areas. I do this because it saves me money (water is quite expensive these days) and also because plastic containers have been shown to contain BPA a chemical used in plastics and linings for cans. BPA has been shown to cause hormone imbalances and be a factor in heart disease and Diebetes. Now there has been a study showing that using soup out of a can causes the BPA level to increase dramaticly. People in the study that ate canned soup for five days had over 1000% higher level of BPA than those that ate only soup made from scratch. heres the link. http://vitals.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/11/22/8959295-bpa-levels-soar-after-lunching-on-canned-soup
Been trucking since 96. My main interest is having a good healthy life.
