I've been drinnnking bottled water for years.........They say, its not suppose to be opened hten sit ina hot car, somting ot do with theway plastics start breaking down or something....I eat bacon...it causes cancer, I like to smell gas being pumped, and ciagrette lighter fluid, I have no clue if this is for real, I still will drink bottled water, just not leave it in the car for it to get hot anymore..........Stuff gets started all hte time, next....wearing pajamas or new balance tennis shoes will cause breast cancer............well, I just had mastectomy a month ago......and I know for a fact cant't anyone tell me why...I do know it was NOT from drinking bottled water. I think this is BS..............
Well...there's actually studies out on the subject b/c a clear, hard plastic bottles can containe bisphenol A, aka BPA. BPA, especially when a bottle is left in the sunlight can prodcue synthetic estrogen, and it has been the subject of debate. Just to be sure, I try to drink from and carry my spring water in glass bottles.
Thank you for the informative information! I only use the flimy plastic bottles that can be recycles and never microwave in plastic or use plastic wrap in microwave. Where do you find glass bottles with lids?
Thanks, Fairy! That's a great question. I recycle bottles that I buy for iced tea (Snapple) or big bottles of apple juice that I buy at Whole Foods and use them to store my spring water. There are also some trendy water bottles that they sell at health food stores. I buy the water just for the bottle!
For my basic water consumption, I have the water delivered to my home in big 10-gallon jugs (think water cooler at work) and them fill them up. It's not that expensive ($7 a jug) and I feel good knowing that the water is CLEAN!
When we can afford it, I'd like to invest in a double-osmosis filter so I feel comfortable drinking from the tap. Water is so important I prefer to make sure it's clean. What kind of water do you drink?
I drink distilled water I buy. WIth cancer in our family we were advised to not drink chlorinated water. Which makes a lot of sense. The Snapples bottles are an Excellent idea! Thanks for that tip! Adding you to my friend list! I buy distilled by the gallon and fill up my bottles. I live in the country and jsut do nto trust to drink well water. Its UV filtered, but hey, we fill the pool up, bathe, wash clothes, dishes etc...but not drink it.
I also buy the big gallons of bottled water although I live in a hot climate and even tho the plastic is a sturdy one, I think they must sit in the heat awhile before they make it to my doorstep. I'm thinking of investing not on any purified water but a Ionic water machine.
Ionized water is quite amazing! although when you first start it, it is so detoxifying that you might have heaadaches from it! I've seen some amazing stuff on it, but haven't tried it myself yet!
I also don't wear bras with wires in them and my breasts have been a lot less painful lately. Us woman just get used to our bras hurting us and thinking nothing of it...When I switched the everyday pains from my bra dissapeared. This is key to preventing breast cancer our lymph in this area needs to circulate to do it's job.
