Chet and I have been concerned about the the dangers of using plastic to store food and beverages since fall 2005. We had Klean Kanteens back when the company was a church group in California. The only way to order Kanteens was to call long distance and talk to a person.
Anyway, we are happy that the new research is bringing attention to the issues of plastic food storage and the dangers of Bisphenol A (BPA). Two important recent academic articles are listed below. They are a bit technical, but good info.
Association of Urinary Bisphenol A Concentration With Medical Disorders and Laboratory Abnormalities in Adults – The scariest part is their conclusion: Higher BPA exposure, reflected in higher urinary concentrations of BPA, may be associated with avoidable morbidity in the community-dwelling adult population.
If you have not already switched, consider using a nonplastic reusable water bottle – good for the environment, good for you.
