Huh. Guess that's something to watch out for, though it seems hard to tell where they'd still be coming from (although food coming from non-US sources, especially those with more lax environmental laws, are probably suspect.) Thanks for the update!

They're essentially persistent, feminizing, insulin resistancing nuances that were banned a few decades ago in the US but still persist to a degree.

I can't say I've actually heard anything ABOUT pcbs. Can you link us anything on the dangers of them?
