To solve healthcare, first do no harm. Look at all the cute little baby bottles.

Oh, I'm sorry. Think bottlers. Water, cola, etc. Especially if they sit in the sun.

That's crazy.  My wife has been worried about this for our 2 kids (18 months and 7 weeks old) because of baby bottles and sippy cups. We didn't know if it was something that needed to be taken seriously or if companies were taking advantage of parental paranoia by selling alternatives (non-BPA plastic bottles) at a premium.

From another perspective, how can we use this information to our advantage?  Who will this negatively impact?  What companies stand to most benifit from this developement?

I stopped drinking out of a nalgene after reading something about the effects some time ago. I have noticed a little bit of man boobage going on (or is this the effect of having kids and not exercising). Doesn't aluminum have a study showing increased risk of cancer. What do the french drink out of? Those cantinas made out of a hide or something.

I wonder if this will end up  like the cigarette fiasco.

Seanonymous,

Good for your wife. EWG offers answers to the question; what can I do? I also recommend looking at their skin care information.

I presume it will affect packaging, bottlers, canners.

madcowmonkey,

The cigarette fiasco was because the cig companys denied that their products were carcinogens and later it was learned they knew otherwise.

The chemical companys, and bottle manufacturers have a chance right now to get out of trouble. Free. Unless they have known this is a problem. And like with the cig companys, sooner or later someone will spill their guts.

I do not know of any problems with aluminum other than flavor.

The chemical company's have known is my point. I read about estrogen in plastic having these effects around 3 years ago.

I think there was a study on drinking out of aluminum cans, but I know there was one done on the aluminum in deoderant (?spelling) some time back. I noticed the avent bottles that we use to feed my boy(s) is in the picture. Good thing we mostly do the boob, but it makes me wonder about the products we buy so much of in the plastic. damn manboobs.
