Killer Water Bottle Warning
- The plastic (called polyethylene terephthalate or PET) used in these bottles contains a potentially carcinogenic element (something called diethylhydroxylamine or DEHA).
- Repeated washing and rinsing can cause the plastic to break down and the carcinogens (cancer-causing chemical agents) can leak into the water.
- It is better to invest in a bottle meant for multiple use.
- The bottles should not be kept for more than a week.
- Keep bottles out of the heat.
