Do you still drink from a dangerous plastic bottle?
Stainless steel water bottles, such as our 26 oz. Stainless Steel Reusable Best on Earth Water Bottles, are a better alternative to plastic or aluminum bottles. Stainless steel bottles are 100% recyclable, durable, and do not alter the taste of your liquids. The greatest feature of our bottles is that they are free from chemicals like BPA, and are safe to use with hot liquids.
Plastic bottles release chemicals when scratched and heated, or when it comes in contact with acidic substances. One of these chemicals is Bisphenol A (BPA), a component of plastic water bottles, baby bottles, inner lining of food cans, microwave containers, and hundreds of common household and industrial products.
What is BPA?
BPA is a chemical compound that has a structure similar to the hormone estrogen. BPA upsets the balance of hormonal messages in the body. Hundreds of scientific studies have shown that BPA is linked to developmental and reproductive abnormalities, free radical damage, and even neurological disorders in animal models. In humans, the compound has been found to be linked to early onset of puberty, breast, uterine and prostate malignancies, obesity and diabetes. By far the most common finding is that BPA in low doses is toxic during fetal and infant development. Pregnant women who were exposed to BPA had a higher than normal rate of birth defects and fetal and neonatal deaths.
There are billions of people around the world who drink water from plastic bottles every day. Unfortunately, bottled water is harmful to the environment, your health, and is very expensive. Ironically, people who buy bottled water in an effort to improve overall health may be damaging their bodies.
