Canned veggies cause cancer! ohnoz!11

Remember the BPAs that were in Nalgene bottles that got them taken off of the shelf for a while and replaced with new bottles with huge "no BPAs" stickers? Now they're saying that they're in canned goods, too. How long until they figure out a way to prove that freeze dried and dehydrated foods are silent killers? Before we know it bulk rice, dried beans and even bulk wheat will be as dangerous as DDT. I have no problem with the news making a big deal about "killer plastics". I do have a problem when the government steps in and ensures that everyone stops using the "killer product" and switches to the "new and improved cancer free" version. They need to have some excuse for when the price of everything on the canned rack goes up by 40% overnight. Oh, and they also have to figure out a way to get you to throw away all of the stuff that you have so that you have to go out and buy more stuff. It's all for your protection after all.
