• I know that bottled water isnot good for a person.
  • copy of e-mail I received... Bottled water in your car.....very dangerous, This is how Sheryl Crow got breast cancer. She was on the Ellen show and said this same exact thing. This has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels in breast cancer, especially in Australia. The doctor said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car, and, pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know and be aware and just might save us!!!! The heat causes toxins from the plastic to leak into the water and they have found these toxins in breast tissue. Use a stainless steel Canteen or a glass bottle when you can!!!
  • I'm sorry but that's bullshit. Every day people think there's something new which causes breast cancer in women- next it'll be fruit or something. There is no scientific proof behind any of these claims and frankly it's just scaremongering. If you don't have cancer in your family, don't be afraid. Just live a healthy lifestyle and it'll be very unlikely that you'll get cancer.
  • I did not, and I still don't. The link you cited may have some information that some would like to pursue further but as their own disclaimer said it is for informational puposes only. For those that would care to take this as the truth , I for one would not atttempt to dispute.+5
  • "Claim: Reusing, freezing, or heating plastic water bottles will cause them to break down into carcinogenic compounds or release dioxins." "MIXTURE OF TRUE AND FALSE INFORMATION" "This information was given to me by my husband and I know all the ladies in my life should know and please forward it to all the ladies in your life." "My husband has a friend whose mother recently got diagnosed with breast cancer. The doctor told her women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car. The doctor said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. So please be careful and do not drink that water bottle that has been left in a car and pass this on to all the women in your life." "Origins: Sorting out the various claims made about potential health issues associated with plastic water bottles is a difficult process, both because so many different claims are being circulated and because the generic term "plastic bottle" can in fact refer to any one of several different types of bottles with distinctly different chemical properties. Water, soda, and juice are typically sold in bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate, also known as PET or PETE. These containers are intended to be disposable, single-use bottles, although many consumers wash them and re-use them to hold drinking water (or other beverages). One common claim referenced above is that freezing or re-using PET bottles releases "dioxins" into whatever liquids they may contain, but of this claim Johns Hopkins researcher Dr. Rolf Halden says: Q: What do you make of this recent email warning that claims dioxins can be released by freezing water in plastic bottles? A: This is an urban legend. There are no dioxins in plastics. In addition, freezing actually works against the release of chemicals. Chemicals do not diffuse as readily in cold temperatures, which would limit chemical release if there were dioxins in plastic, and we don't think there are. Another common type of plastic bottle is made with bisphenol A, also known as BPA. These products are typically rigid plastic bottles intended for multiple re-use, such as baby bottles or water bottles carried by cyclists. Concerns about tests that may link BPA ingestion with cancer and reproductive damage in some animals and the possibility that BPA could leach out of plastic bottles and into the liquids they contain has led to bans in some areas on the use of BPA in plastic products intended for children (such as baby bottles), and has prompted some consumers to seek out non-BPA alternatives."
