Except for the part about the canned tomatoes:

From "Seven Foods Experts Won't Go Near":

1. Canned Tomatoes

The expert: Fredrick vom Saal, PhD, an endocrinologist at the
University of Missouri who studies bisphenol-A

The problem: The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a
synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from
reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
Unfortunately, acidity (a prominent characteristic of tomatoes) causes
BPA to leach into your food. Studies show that the BPA in most
people's body exceeds the amount that suppresses sperm production or
causes chromosomal damage to the eggs of animals. "You can get 50 mcg
of BPA per liter out of a tomato can, and that's a level that is going
to impact people, particularly the young," says vom Saal. "I won't go
near canned tomatoes."

The solution: Choose tomatoes in glass bottles (which do not need
resin linings), such as the brands Bionaturae and Coluccio. You can
also get several types in Tetra Pak boxes, like Trader Joe's and Pomi.

Submission + - Apple Approves Eucalyptus Without Filters

jea6 writes: Thanks to the Internet outcry, Apple has come to its senses and approved Eucalyptus without filters for the App Store. The developer posted, "Earlier today I received a phone call from an Apple representative. He was very complimentary about Eucalyptus. We talked about the confusion surrounding its App Store rejections, which I am happy to say is now fully resolved. He invited me to re-build and submit a version of Eucalyptus with no filters for immediate approval, and that full version is now available on the iPhone App Store." Of course, needing to be shamed into approval is a terrible way to run an App Store. Hopefully iPhone 3.0 controls will reduce the number of unnecessary rejections but some transparency on the process would be welcome.
