BPA – protect and survive…

By Anthony Clark
Posted 29 October 2012

Like all sensible and well informed people you’re probably terrified by Bisphenol A (BPA). This toxic chemical, so widely used by heartless and callous packaging companies, posses a real and ever-present threat. But help is finally to be had…

So let’s give a big hand to Information Nigeria for telling us about some helpful ways to minimise the dangers of BPA. Here we go – a cut out and keep list of things to do if you think you’re ingesting that horrid BPA stuff…

1. Eat plenty of fibre

2. Eat plenty of beans

3. Eat plenty of brown rice

4. Eat plenty of chillies

You’d have thought that the bowel-loosening fear that BPA already induces in the general public would have been enough. But no… according to the Information Nigeria additional assistance is required.

We’ve had the PRW boffins check over the science and they’re already looking into producing a patent medicine that mimics the required result. We’ll keep you posted as the research develops.

Fortunately, the staff here at PRW always ask for additional hot chilli sauce on our Friday night, post-pub kebab. You’d be well advised to follow our lead.
