Can food is the new plastic (or actually worst)

This is sad. I learned about BPA (Bisphenol A) in canned food. The amount of BPA in canned food is twice more than plastic! I don't really eat canned food, but I bought some ingredient in can like coconut milk (in Thailand we just make it fresh from coconut). Even the organic canned food has BPA. It comes with the cans.

BPA links to hormone imbalances, including breast and prostate cancer, early puberty and changes in brain structure, particularly for exposures during key points of fetal or early neonatal development.

Read more below.

P.S. if you are going to cook curry, use coconut milk that comes in paper boxes. Or milk it
from fresh coconut if you can get some. I know I will from now on.

Mrs. McCain is original

Everyone probably already heard of this. I first read it a while ago and somehow I still marveled at Mrs. McCain's courage to keep on stealing. Maybe she is very innocent, not very smart, or high on cherry flavor cough syrup. I mean, if I'm going to steal other people recipe, I won't copy it from famous source like Food network or Hershey. I'd bribe a really old lady for recipe and threaten to takeaway all her blankets and tea kettles if she ever tell anyone. "All employee must wash their hands"

From Wonkette
"A few months ago, John McCain’s second and current wife, “Trollop” Cindy, was caught stealing recipes from the Food Network and publishing them as her own material, a simple lapse of ethics that you’re supposed to learn, and master, at age four. Cindy has contributed another recipe, to Parents magazine. This recipe for Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies was, of course, directly cribbed from Hershey’s website."
