New Study Links Higher BPA Levels to Drinking From Polycarbonate Water Bottles

by Tom Markiewicz on June 25, 2009

A new Harvard study confirms the health risks associated with BPA in polycarbonate water bottles.

We found that drinking cold liquids from polycarbonate bottles for just one week increased urinary BPA levels by more than two-thirds. If you heat those bottles, as is the case with baby bottles, we would expect the levels to be considerably higher.

    Hmmm, I thought this was already confirmed. One more can’t hurt to provide more argument, but I’m already down to one bottle used only occasionally.

    I use my BPA-full Nalgene to make coffee, and to hold water. But, I’m not too worried about it.

    Besides, my bottle has a sticker on it that I don’t want to get rid of.

    BPA is one of many Estrogenic Activators in plastic. It is these activators that cause the concern for shrinking testicles, breast cancer, obesity, etc. Plastic is not all bad, some chemistry may just be better. http://pur-bot.com
