We are being told that plastic water bottles MAY be dangerous.
Evidently it is because of RECYCLED plastic.
It isn’t the non-recycled plastic, but those precious little green eyed monsters who demand everyone be green.
Or is it possible some industry DID NOT pay Chicago Mobster Don Barack Obama enough to leave ’em alone? (Just a thought).
It’s not easy being green, that’s for sure.
“…Unfortunately, those fabulous colourful hard plastic lexan bottles made with polycarbonate plastics and identified by the #7 recycling symbol, may leach BPA. Bisphenol A is a xenoestrogen, a known endocrine disruptor, meaning it disturbs the hormonal messaging in our bodies. Synthetic xenoestrogens are linked to breast cancer and uterine cancer in women, decreased testosterone levels in men, and are particularly devastating to babies and young children. BPA has even been linked to insulin resistance and Type 2 Diabetes…”
Snoops has more on the subject, sorting through the urban legends.
Even worse – they clog land-fills. The whole green world is against plastic water bottles. Why not be against the SAME plastic bottles that contain soda, milk, fruit juice? Is it only water that is the problem? If so, maybe the problem is the RECYCLE demands and the green idiots who have forced this do-do on us.
“…Even bottled water that is regulated may still be contaminated. The Sierra Club reports that the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) tested 103 brands of bottled water and found contamination exceeding allowable limits in about one-third of the brands, including toxins such as arsenic, synthetic organics and bacteria….”
Evidently much of the danger is hype, and “green“. It’s like those idiotic recycle grocery bags they want everyone to use. Now it seems the bags are breeding grounds for dangerous bacteria.
It makes me wonder what company did NOT give tribute to Barack Obama, and is now being targeted for extermination.
