Should I really worry about this? I can't find any real information on it besides that it is called xenoestrogen.

If you're worried buy a filter for your faucet and a bottle. I wouldn't worry about it though.

Huh? I never heard anything about Estrogen in bottled water. Anyways...I am anti-bottle water. No need to produce more plastic when you can buy a water bottle and fill it up with tap water. If you live in an area that doesn't have good tap water than buy those filter like whiteman90909 mentioned.

edit:

Here is a link that shows tap water vs bottle water

You get xenoextrogen from any food or drink that contacts plastic.

You'll get some pretty conflicting data on how much of the estrogen analogue diffuses into the water.
I don't use bottled water on the grounds that it's incredibly irresponsible (from an environmental perspective). Get a reusable metal water bottle, and buy a filter for your tap. You'll save a ton of money, and the water doesn't have that slight plasticy taste.
