This is just great. A recent study came out that found that even when you take the bisphenols (BPAs) out of plastics, you still get the same results from using them: aggressive, physiologically effeminized boys and preternaturally pubescent girls who have a high risk of developing breast cancer later in life. This is particularly sad news, as getting BPAs out of plastics was a hard-fought battle and apparently one that was destined to lose.

If one is so inclined, one may look around and find all manner of everyday threats to our health. There is bisphenol-A (BPA) in plastic water bottles (a recent Harvard study found that people drinking from these bottles for a week showed an increase in BPA in their urine by as much as 69 percent). The food we eat will definitely kill us. A survey of national chain restaurants in the U.S. found that slow-food places like Applebee’s or T.G.I. Friday’s are the unhealthiest, so much so that fast-food places didn’t even register in the top 10. (The Cheesecake Factory’s Chicken and Biscuits entree, for example, has about 2,500 calories — the same as an eight-piece bucket and five biscuits at Kentucky Fried Chicken.) Plus, there are plenty of buses.
If you weren’t a trembling blob of death-fearing jelly already, here’s some more bad news.
