Simply put, an obesogen is a chemical that causes weight gain. Obesogens work differently in every body, but they have negative implications on our health. Find out more information on obesogens in Obesogens: The Hidden Culprit of Weight Gain.

Here are 14 ways you can avoid obesogen exposure.

1. Avoid using plastic containers for food storage—glass and stainless steel are excellent alternatives.

2. Avoid plastic baby bottles and children’s cups. Klean Kanteen, Pura, 5 Phases and Dr. Brown’s offer stainless steel or glass options.

3. Be aware that even plastic labeled BPA-free may harbor endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

4. Avoid foods in cans lined with BPA. Some companies, including Amy’s Kitchen, Eden Foods, Trader Joe’s and Wild Planet, offer foods in BPA-free cans.
