Popeye the Sailor Man after a life of eating from BPA lined cans

The use of Bisphenol A, or BPA, is controversial; everyone threw away their polycarbonate bottles years ago and moved on to different plastics, but the stuff is still used in the epoxy liners of most steel and aluminum cans. Various studies have found that low-dose exposure caused problems in sexual development, metabolism, obesity stress levels and memory loss. Then the latest study from the FDA didn't find anything at all.

Cartoonist Joe Mohr has rolled all those health impacts of Bisphenol A into one cartoon, which we show here with his permission.
