I just had someone at work take a look at my water bottle and laugh at me because of the "toxins" of a #7. I've never even heard anything about this until 15 minutes ago. I've been using this waterbottle for 3 years haha. Hopefully I dont just drop dead because of my waterbottle its not my idea of a good way to go out.
I still use my lexan unbreakable water bottle every day. I feel just fine!
I dont really think any side affects would be noticeable right away if what they say is true anyways.
id be more worried about what is inside that water bottle.
dihydrogen-oxide kills thousands of people per year!
Bisphenol A is an environmental estrogen that mimics biological estrogen and promotes hormone response in the body. Apparently it's now just becoming some big worry.
Guess what, you already got a huge dose of it as a baby since it's in baby bottles and many other hard plastics. I really wouldn't be that concerned about it, it takes a lot to really do anything to you.

Do you understand that the second you
look in the mirror and you're happy with
what you see, baby, you just
lost the battle!
I've been using Nalgene bottles for a good 2 years and recently this is apparently a huge concern now.
I've heard different numbers being thrown out there - #3, #5 and #7. #3-#7. #5 and #7. Etc. I believe all Nalgene and other plastics that are indestructible are #7.
There's a bottle out there now that's called Camel Back and this is BPA free. Nalgene is already in the process of bringing out BPA free bottles. There's also aluminum bottles out there as well without BPA. Haven't looked into them that much, though.
Recently I've just been buying a gallon water bottle at the local grocery store every 3 days which is only $0.99 and using that to drink out of.

Yeah I read that stainless steel or aluminum bottles are the way to go now. I'll probably never go out of my way to actually do any of this I just thought it sounded crazy.
I blame my fatness on plastic water bottles. And carbs. And then whatever else comes around next week.
