They add a lot of extra salt in canned beans and veggies. I like to be able to control my salt content so I avoid them for that reason alone. Otherwise they provide a nice shortcut and long shelf life.
>>7268898 canned tomatoes are better than fresh when not in season. canned corn is okay. canned anchovies are good. i think any other stuff you can't get fresh (especially vegetables) you should buy frozen.
>>7268898 >Is there anything wrong with eating canned food? some can be salty, and most people throw away the "broth" they were canned with which kind of makes it less nutritious but overall canned food is perfectly fine.

Canned food is cooked for a long time in giant industrial pressure cookers in order to sterilize the contents of the can and protect against spoilage. That means the food can last a very long time but the long cooking time is not good for some ingredients.
Things like kidney/pinto/black/etc beans work great as canned food since they have a naturally long cooking time anyway. On the other hand most green vegetables only need to be cooked for a couple of minutes, if that. So things like spinach, peas, green beans end up overcooked.
I can my own food and it is quite good with few of the drawbacks of conventionally canned foods- - no preservatives - low salt - raw packed for more nutrition retention - glass jars do not leach metals into your food
