Yes! I have been on a bit of a sieve mission today!

Collapsible colander, was pleasantly surprised how thick the silicone was and the plastic is sturdy. Feels like it will last a while. Folds up completely flat. 22cm wide.

Seemed like a bargain compared to those flimsy plastic sieves and brittle colanders they normally have.

Redbiro, firstly, please do not take this personally - it isn't aimed at you, just my thoughts on this kind of "research" and a lot of the health scares seen in the news in general.

Yes, there is a theoretical risk with BPA. However, the reports are limited and guess what, you name anything and throw enough research at it - someone will come up with a link to something.

"Minute amounts of BPA can transfer from packaging into food and drinks, but independent experts have advised that these levels of exposure are not considered to be harmful. Independent studies have shown that, even when consumed at high levels, BPA is rapidly absorbed, detoxified, and eliminated from humans". - See more at: food.gov.uk/sci…faq

So, the fact that the FDA in the US and the European Food Safety Authority have found "no appreciable health risk." should be largely ignored in favour of research by less well funded individuals who *may* have found a link. Sadly, researchers have many vested interests in finding results or generating headlines.

Even when the worst of research surfaces, mass media will jump on it. TV and newspapers are forced into peddling sensationalist headlines to get people "interested in the story", otherwise they have nothing to sell.

Does an "increased risk" or even "double the risk" mean a product is harmful or dangerous ? Far from it. If 1 in 10 people are at risk of death, increasing the risk to 2 in 10 is significant, I'd agree. However, if the risk was 1 in 300 Billion to 2 in 300 Billion, yes,the *number* of people at risk has "doubled" (and that is exactly how the media will report it), but the actual increased risk of death is still insignificant or could it even be attributed to another anomaly...

Putting food for the briefest period of time into a BPA container to drain it (even IF a link were proven) would increases your risk to what?

Please people, relax, have a cup of tea (read a report that shows Tea reduces the risk of cancer, not a report that indicates it increases your risk) and take it easy.

The stress you will cause yourself worrying about whether a product will do any harm to you (and avoiding it) could cause more damage to you than the product itself...stress is a killer you know...

VOTED HOT!

Love it and highlights the point perfectly, almost anything can be proven or disproven in studies, depends on the researcher's motives/objectives.

Some good comments on that article, nice attention grabbing headline....
