A bird-brained panic

According to WWF, common chemicals are building up inside the bodies of animals such as domestic birds, causing ill-health and possibly death. But actually, there's no evidence that budgies are keeling over from frying pan fumes. It's just a press release designed to panic us over new EU regulations.

Remember: man-made is bad (e.g. "chemicals"), natural is good (e.g. "trace elements").
