Missing the point, again

Oh my!

A new test conducted for Consumer Reports magazine found bisphenol A leaching into food from nearly all cans, including those marked "BPA-free" and "organic."

The magazine's tests found that levels of the chemical in many of the cans were comparable to those found to cause cell damage and behavioral effects in animal studies.

The results, which are to be published Tuesday in the magazine's December issue, echo those found last year in tests conducted by the Journal Sentinel.

So according to this report, unsafe levels of BPA are in virtually everything we eat. But humans show none of the adverse effects found in lab animals. I think I am safe to conclude that the BPA lab tests are non-relevant to humans.
