so theres this big talk about avoiding bpa and baby bottles. well we're supposed to drink water and i dont kno about all of you but i drink bottled water because of not knowing how clean our tap water is....well bpa is also leached into out bottled water. so..so much for trying to have avoided this whole time. i was drinking SO much bottled water throughout the entire pregnancy.
anyways, im wondering about a safe alternative. are there safe bottled water that wont leach things into the water? are filtration systems really better?
shoot might as well take one of domincs bpa free bottles and drink out of that. haha
i hear ya there! i feel like every time i turn around there's something else thats harmful. no matter what you do - you just can't win. its like one week - chocolate helps prevent cancer, next week - chocolate causes cancer! its sooo much to think about!
LOL...I know. I think that we should just live and not worry about things so much. How many years did we drink from those bottles that probably contained the bpa chemical. I'm 30 and still ticking along. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow....gee, I hope I don't but the point is we will eventually learn something new that is harmful and we will avoid those things at all costs too. It's just too much.
I have no medical facts to base it on. I know what they say, I know what's in the news.
I choose not to worry about something as pervasive as foods packaged in plastic. I worry about more controllable health risks, like obesity, nutrition, exercise, not smoking, and the myriad of other things we can much more easily control, and that are much riskier to us all.
Try to avoid plastic and see how far you get. It would, of course, be ideal--but pretty darn hard.
If you have the time, and are worried about it--go for it and try to remove all plastic packaging from your lives.
I'm still working on the thing that was most likely to end my life early--obesity and lack of nutritional awareness.
I heard that it's so insignificant that it doesn't have any effect. Next they will say using ball point pens leads to cancer or putting a q-tip in your ear. I mean this is life. Let's just live it to the fullest and stop obsessing about meaningless garbage. It's getting ridiculous already. I'm glad though that I'm not the only one who feels this way.
i had no idea what bpa or whatever it is was, but when i bought my new brita it says its better then bottled water because it doesnt emit bpa, so if you buy a brita filtration system that sits right in the fridge its supposable better, even though i still have no idea what this stuff is supposed to do, i too, doubt that its that harmful because ive been drinking bottled water since as long as i can remember and havent croked yet, but who knows, they are saying everything is bad for you these days, i just got my couch scotch guarded and apparently that causes cancer...who knew
