Do BPA-free plastics such as Tritan have human hormone-disrupting effects? And what about BPS and BPF?

If BPS is so bad, Why BPA Hasn’t Been Banned? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/why-bpa-hasnt-been-banned/) Such a qood question I made a video about it!
What was that about grocery store receipts? See Getting Under Our Skin - BPA on Receipts (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/getting-under-our-skin-bpa-on-receipts).
Even though canned fruits may not be as BPA contaminated, unfortunately they may not be as healthy as fresh or frozen. See Is Canned Fruit as Healthy? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-canned-fruit-as-healthy/).
This is part of an extended series on the chemical. I think my last video on the topic was How to Avoid the Obesity-Related Plastic Chemical BPA (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-to-avoid-the-obesity-related-plastic-chemical-bpa/).
Unfortunately that’s not the only plastics chemical that may have adverse health effects. See also Avoiding Adult Exposure to Phthalates (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/avoiding-adult-exposure-phthalates/) and What Diet Best Lowers Phthalate Exposure? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/what-diet-best-lowers-phthalate-exposure).
