Bispheol A and hormones---

This brief article on Times of the Internet ran across my email this morning, and it talks about how the chemical Bisphenol A (commonly used in plastics) can disrupt sex hormones (progesterone, testosterone, and estrogen) in mice. I know we've all been hearing on the news about the danger of plastic bottles, and I have noticed in a bunch of the weekly ads for the discount/drug stores (Target, Walmart, etc.) ads for back to school (already!) and they are featuring aluminun water bottles-----good for the environment, good for your health. Do remember to stay well hydrated in this hot weather---
