healthy water bottles

One of the biggest BPA predators are plastic water bottles. We have made the switch FINALLY to BPA free alummiun water bottles. Although I agree throwing a plastic disposable water bottle in your purse or gym bag is convient it is so DANGEROUS. An expert panel of scientists has concluded that exposure to extremely low doses of bisphenol A is strongly linked to diseases such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, and diabetes, and to reproductive and neurological development. Plastic containing BPA may also be called, Polycarbonate, Lexan and Polysulfone. Though it is generally clear, it can be tinted in various colors. Plastic that contains BPA carries the #7 recycling symbol, as well, so never use those bottles. Personally I reccommend staying away from these plastics as much as possible.
