There's something inside cans of Coca-Cola that may be going away.

Coke shareholders are voting on a resolution about the use of bisphenol-A, or BPA, in soda can linings.

Experts say the chemical compound has been linked to potential changes in brain structure, immune and reproductive systems, and could lead to an increased rate of breast cancer.

Coca-Cola stopped using BPA in plastic bottles but it is still found in the plastic used to line aluminum cans.
