  1. So, do we conclude that leaving food about in BPA containers is a good way to control the mouse population?

  4. Does anyone see how many animals were used for the study? Maybe I’m being obtuse this morning, but so far, my only conclusion that can be definitely drawn is there was at least two (they use mice, not mouse), but beyond that, I can’t find anything that looks like real numbers in THIS version of the study:
