DT Friday Freakout: Nutcracker Edition

Whew, we've had family and Nutcracker up to ^^^ here this weekend, so here, just in time to ruin your Sunday night, are some freakout stories from the worlds of science, health, parenting, politics:

  • But first, an open letter to the CEO of Campbell's Soup from momblogger Stephanie Aulenbeck titled, Bisphenol-A, Campbell's Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup, and the Imminent Collapse of the Global Economy. Haven't finished it yet, but I think I know what it's about. [crookedhouse via stephanie herself]

  • And then, an NYT op-ed about how the increasingly privatized school lunch industrial complex turns mandated, subsidized natural foods into its processed, unhealthy crap. And then lobbies to keep doing it. Pizza-as-vegetable is the tip of the iceberg. [nyt]

  • It's the Daily Mail, so we'll let the headline do all the heavy freakout lifting: "Father has finger bitten off in parents' brawl at school NATIVITY PLAY, as Christmas spirit evaporates." The brawler dads of Taunton, MA salute you, England! [dailymail]

  • Meanwhile, at the Telegraph, the freakout headline, 'One third of Chinese toys contain heavy metals' [!!} gives way to, "Almost one in three toys in China contains..." whatever. Given the amount of Chinese comment spam I have to deal with, I'm tempted to call this karma and move on. [telegraph via dt reader jjdaddyo]

  • Fukushima indeed. Powdered formula in Japan has tested positive for cesium. [crooksandliars via jjdaddyo]

  • "Among the 12 persons who participated in the event, the patients are the only two known to have used their teeth to castrate lambs." haha, made you click. [ via felix]
