The Star:

There are pictures of pregnant women smoking on cigarette packages. The label says “Warning: Cigarettes Hurt Babies.”

Waddle up to a bar, and you’ll see a similar message on a poster by the women’s washroom. It declares alcohol “can cause birth defects and brain damage in your baby.”

There should be similar warnings on many bottles of shampoo, moisturizers, shower curtains, packages of cheese and plastic Tupperware. The disclaimer should say: includes gender-bending chemicals harmful to fetuses. Risks include: reduced testosterone, undescended testicles, smaller penises and less masculine behaviour in boys.

Just great.
