Canned food is not an ideal or best option since many studies have shown they contain Bisphenol A (BPA) which has has been associated with increased risk for reproductive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, neurological and behavioral disorders, miscarriages, breast and prostate cancer, metabolic dysfunction and diabetes.

In my point of view and even from health perspective, preparing soup from fresh vegetables , fruits and wholesome foods is the best options as they are rich in nutrients , under goes less processing if at all it has to under go one and aid in weight loss.

On the other hand, we have all kinds of canned soup and perhaps you have seen them on your local store, and I have my reservation to this since they contain chemicals and preservatives when they are processed to help give them a long shelf life. In my case, I always buy fresh ingredients and prepare my soup at home and refrigerate it, and are chemical and preservatives free, and certainly a lot of people are doing this.
