Almost all canned goods contain Bisphenol A, which is an endocrine disruptor and can mimic estrogen causing all sorts of health
problems. Also, most canned soups are loaded with "filler" products like potatoes and corn and contain very little nutritive veggies.

Life Extension's vegetable soups contain only healthy ingredients, including loads of cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, etc.), extra-virgin olive oil

soup cans. The FDA says Bisphenol-A is safe, but Life Extension does not trust the FDA’s judgment on this issue.

Each 60–70 calorie serving of these new soups provides a full serving of the world’s healthiest vegetables. The entire container supplies about 3.5 servings of these vegetables — with none of the cheap
starch fillers found in commercial
