    BPA free = a marketing scam. It is replaced by another chemical that causes more issues.

    It’s a marketing scam, folks. BPA free does NOT = SAFE to use.

    “University of Calgary scientists say they think their research is the first to show that bisphenol-S, an ingredient in many products bearing “BPA-free” labels, causes abnormal growth surges of neurons in an animal embryo.”

    “A lot of the alternative chemicals have not been adequately tested because they don’t have to be,” said lead author Deborah Kurrasch. “A compound is considered safe (by the Food and Drug Administration) until proven otherwise.”

    Stainless Steel=iron, carbon, chromium, nickel
    It is crystalline structure.

    In presence CL, chlorine and time that crystalline structure changes, structures made of it degrades. stability
    That factor is important enough in Nuclear Power Plants that for Class 1 piping their chlorine exposure must be limited.

    Not sure if that makes a difference in drinking utensils.
    Not sure if switches in crystalline structures may cause some nickel release.

    And the glasses are dark not from sunlight
    but from radiation emanating from her eyes.

    When someone crosses her she just take the glasses off.

    Reminds me of Taleb's Lindy effect (aka don't rush out for the latest greatest)

    "So things that have been in existence for a long period of time can be considered more robust/antifragile, i.e., more likely to continue to survive, than new things that haven't passed the test of time"

    i catch wild fish, hunt reindeer, and i butcher pork, lamb and cow. i freeze them in vaccum bags (organs and meat on bones), but i dont like this beacuse of the plastics from the vacuum bags. How do you freeze your fish and meat? If i buy meat/fish in the shop, i dont know the animal (i will not feed my family this), and it is always wrapped in clear platic on a blue light counter. So my method is not good, but better than shop fish/meat.
    Guess raw oysters is the only food with a optimal "wrapping"

    Wax butcher paper is still out there. It's your personal call but once the meat is completely covered in wax paper and not touching plastic I feel safe enough to bag it or vacuum seal it prior to freezing.
