Oops. 

Maybe it wasn’t all those ice cream sundaes that gave you diabetes, but rather the dish it was served in.

And that plastic water bottle gave you cardiovascular disease.

We live in surreal times, so I’m not particularly surprised to find that BPA, a chemical that is used in the production of plastic, and found in most plastic bottles and food containers – as well as in the plastic linings of many cans, might contribute to diabetes and heart disease.

Here’s a link to the Medscape hope-you-don’t-glaze-over edition.

Maybe I’ll switch to stainless steel and glass…
