Health Nalgene Nixes Plastic Bottles with BPA

Because none of us are as cruel as all of us.
It’s a question many families are asking after reports last week that a chemical used to make baby bottles, water bottles and food containers is facing increasing scrutiny by health officials in Canada and the United States.<br>
<br>

The substance is bisphenol-a, or BPA, widely used in the making of the hard, clear and nearly unbreakable plastic called polycarbonate. Studies and tests show that trace amounts of BPA are leaching from polycarbonate containers into foods and liquids.<br>
<br>

While most of the focus is on products for children, including clear plastic bottles and canned infant formula, the chemical is also used in food-storage containers, some clear plastic pitchers used for filtered water, refillable water bottles and the lining of soft-drink and food cans.<br>

Well, there's a difference between knowing what happens, and doing something about it.

Who listens to the "crazy hippies", which seems to be a large percentage of the natural health community, from my experience.
(No, I'm not a crazy hippie)
Also, I'm young so I don't have that much say in the Adult-Based world.
