We co-wrote a Huffington Post article with the Oakland-based non-profit Food First, which explains how food deserts disproportionately expose people of color to toxic chemicals like BPA in food packaging.
"People living in underserved communities have been found to have higher
levels of BPA in their blood relative to the rest of the population. One possible explanation is greater reliance on canned
foods that are often less expensive and more readily available."
