Are plastic bottles a health Hazard?
I've been drinking about 1 litre water daily from 2 x 500ml plastic "spring water" bottles which I refill daily & freeze to keep cold for the whole day.

I've recently been told that the repeated use of these plastic bottles are harmfull to ones health. Is this true? What are the harmful effects this has on ones body?

Thanks
Michael

Dear Michael
IF you change your bottles very 2 weeks it won't be a problem. They think the plastic degenerates with time.
