Another triumph of peer reviewed science and journalism!

Check this out. Apparently, the Journal of the American Medical Association has published a study linking a chemical found in plastic bottles with obesity and diabetes--that evidently ignores the fact that the biggest contributor to adult onset diabetes, and one of the big contributors to obesity, is the amount of refined sugars found in a person's diet.

No, we can't blame the quart of Mountain Dew for someone's gut and diabetes. We gotta blame the bottle it came in. If anyone wonders why I'm starting to ignore peer reviewed research, this would be a great reason why. H/T Sayanythingblog.
