Some feedback on reusing plastic water bottles

July 5, 2007

Had a comment from Greg saying that he had found sites (below) that indicate that all this fear of reusing, or even using, plastic water bottles is unfounded.

This is exactly why I started this blog: One day you read one thing, the next the exact opposite, what & who are you to believe? Greg went and researched a little & now knows that there is a potential problem with plastic bottles, will make his own decisions, and that is all I hope to accomplish here.

Greg’s articles site the US FDA among others.  Can you trust the FDA? Are they really looking out for public health or are they simply all about the money as Kevin Trudeau believes. If you haven’t read Kevin Trudeau’s Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About you should, then decide how much you trust the FDA. I am going to look out for my own health & not leave it up to them. Heck, you can taste the plastic in the water if its been in the bottle awhile, so the water must absorb something…

I do not know if plastic water bottles are safe or not, but I am at least aware of the possibility of a health risk from a daily activity most of us think of as a healthy habit, namely drinking pure bottled water. How easy is it to use a glass or stainless steel bottle instead?

If the possible health risk isn’t enough to convince you then how about the environmental aspect of reducing plastic bottle use?

Healthier for you and for the earth, but you decide…

Thanks for the comment Greg.
