Plastic Water Bottles Contain Estrogenic Chemicals



 " A 2011 study published in Environmental Health Perspectives found that almost all of the 455 commercially available plastics that were tested leached estrogenic chemicals."



BPA and even BPA free plastics can put our river and streams and maybe even us at risk.




As I see it, the moral of the story is we need to be extremely careful of what we allow to go into our water. Also since estrogenic chemicals are active at very low levels,  the old catch phrase "the solution to pollution is dilution", is simply not true.
