I’ve heard of this before, but this morning it was confirmed by the Today Show….so it must be true right? Apparently the plastic in my Nalgene water bottles is toxic, and can lead to fertility problems. Now let me set the record straight: I am not looking to have a baby any time soon, but I do want to protect my fertility for future use ya know? Any plastic container with the number 3, 6, or 7 in the recycle triangle at the bottom is toxic and should not be used. #7, according to Matt Lauer, is the most dangerous one…and all three of my Nalgenes were #7…go figure. I usually take a Nalgene to work every day…so I’ve totally been poisoned….great.
Non-toxic plastic found in my apartment: shampoo bottle, salad dressing and ketchup containers, Brita water filter, yogurt cup, Pounce cat treat container, and throw-away water bottles….good good.
