Crap, I came here to say basically this.

Fark it, just live your life and stop worrying about everything that might kill you.

Jesus, do they still make those? Tell your boss to stop being such a cheap bastard and buy some farking mugs.

That's nothing new. I've been trying to avoid styrofoam cups for at least 10 years. From what I recall, there's a coating that keeps most of the polystyrene from being ingested on the first use. But anyone who reuses those things is at risk for higher exposure.

Only worked for small businesses I see - though I haven't worked for a company that hasn't used cardboard coffee cups for a while.

Coffee picks you up while helping you calm yourself down! Yessir, I'm one of the new coffee achievers!!

Well, that was diappointing.I was thinking that they had finally gotten round to exposing lead levels in painted mugs from a large Asian country known for using lead based paint for everything but no...

PSA- anything that can be used to make napalm is bad for you.

Wanna have some fun? Fill a styrofoam cup with Mountain Dew, microwave it, and then drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets.

The cup ends up looking very... unpleasant, I guess would be the best word.

I'm afraid to ask how you gained this knowledge. Alcohol and/or drugs had to be involved.

Maybe that's why reusing a foam cup for water the next day always tastes... styrofoamy.

Just alcohol... lots and lots of alcohol... Someone brought Capt. Morgans and a case of Mtn Dew, and we all decided that Mtn Dew made a horrible mixer with CM, so we ended up drinking the rum straight, and finding... other uses, you might say, for the hideous, WMD-Green beverage.

Good times!

If this was true, everybody in America would be riddled with cancer at this point.

But if you still insist on freaking out, just drink out of ceramic and spare yourself the palpitations.

Real men just eat a handful of coffee beans in the morning, right after they down a half-dozen whole eggs and a raw pork snout.

This reminds me of the BS McDonalds coffee case. Summary: Stupid biatch SPILLS coffee on herself, gets scalded and sues McDonalds for serving their coffee HOT, oh noes. Conclusion: She asked for and WON about $million. Typical American justice nowadays.

No doubt the same kind of lawyering scum will be going after polystyrene cups now.

A judge later reduced that amount to $480,000.

Oh, and people around here are real sensitive about Stella (the woman's name). "They" know better'n the rest of us, and will jump on anyone who dares call this woman out for being a dumbass.

And for those people: suck it. You're wrong.

[on topic]

Notice how the article mentions polystyrene (the substance) and then repeatedly uses the brand name Styrofoam. I wonder if there is a libel case in that? I mean yes, Styrofoam is polystyrene, but it's kind of like saying "Beef is bad for you" and then repeatedly saying "Don't eat at McDonald's", "Don't eat at McDonald's" and singling them out from there competitors.

Cancer is likely a genetic disease, and regardless of what precautions you take to "avoid" it, you'll most likely end up with it in the end.
So in a nutshell, the best way to avoid getting cancer is to avoid being born.

Either that, or don't eat anything; mouse studies have demonstrated that reduced caloric intake is directly responsible for reduced generation of "reactive oxygen species" (things like superoxide or hydrogen peroxide that cause problems in quantity), and thus, less DNA damage. Which in turn means less cancer and longer lifespan, hurrah!

The solution for this problem is lying right in front of us, it's just that we happen to enjoy our foodz too much to give them up, just so we can die less.

woop woop

Only poor people drink coffee out of styrofoam cups anyway. I enjoy my latte in a Starbucks cup made out of 57% recycled papyrus.

The Angry Hand of God: How exactly am I supposed to give your wife a BJ?

My ex and I often refered to oral in either direction as BJs. It made any kind of bet for things like pool, what the temperature the next day was going to be, who was right, whatever, a lot easier. "Bet ya a BJ." One of her few cool ideas...

/she was as sexual as she was crazy...

I would imagine that since they haven't pursued this continuously then they would lose the libel case. See "Xerox"

WBBM's Steve Miller reports.

Are you going to believe this space cowboy? I've heard that he's a picker, a grinner, a lover and a sinner. Playing his music in the sun. I also understand that he's a joker, a smoker and a midnight toker. It may be OK because he sure don't want to hurt no one.

/Some people call him "Maurice"

Paul McRandle is a douche. Sure you could get cancer from polystyrene or polycarbonate IF YOU EAT ABOUT 100 TONS OF THE STUFF AT ONE SITTING!
