13. Soda cans are lined with a resin that’s been linked to infertility

You may have heard of the epoxy resin bisphenol A – better known as BPA. Soda cans are often lined with BPA, which acts as a barrier between the metal and the drink. BPA is a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to diabetes, infertility, and reproductive cancers.

Both Coke and Pepsi have been working towards a BPA-free plastic bottle, but they have not yet committed to developing BPA-free aluminum cans for their sodas. My vote? Steer clear until these side effects can be better managed.
