I want to post a question to all you Inter-netty people out there.
Shelby says while they largely agreed with the expert panel, which was convened by the Center for the Evaluation of Risk to Human Reproduction, they broadened the areas they felt could be of "some" concern, including effects on the mammary gland, prostate gland, and acceleration of puberty in females.
Both groups agreed that there already was some concern that exposure to the chemical could cause neural and behavioral effects in fetuses, infants, and children
When this finding hit the news a few weeks ago I wasn't very concerned. Mostly, because I my bottle days are over.
But the truth is, there not. I drink from a water "bottle" everyday.
This isn't just a concern for our babies, but for our children, and for people like me who drink 98% of my liquid from a Recycle #7 bottle (these are the plastics made from PBA.)
The Mister and I were talking last night and then we decided to look at our water dispenser bottles.
In a moment of drama I asked him, "Should we switch to glass? Should we throw away all PBA plastics? Should i not allow the kids to drink from water bottles? What about Nalgene, should I go replace everything with those? Why does it feels like nearly everything we eat or drink or touch or experience has always got some element of danger to it? From Puffed Wheat to Water Bottles, is it all poison?"
This is when he sighed, and looked at me lovingly, and calmly said,
"Yup, you can't leave this earth alive."
Oh the voice of reason...
So I will you ask you. Will you let your kids drink from Recycle #7's? Would you switch to glass?
Inquiring water drinkers want to know...
