Many are unaware of poisoning caused by re-using plastic battles.Some of you may be in the habit of using and re-using of disposable mineral water battles ( e.g. Nestle, Bisleri, Aquafina Kinley, Evian etc......)keeping them in your car or at work not a good idea.

It happened in Dubai, when a 12 years old died after a long usage of (16 monthes) of AAA mineral water bottle as she used to carry the same fancy (painted by her self) bottle to her school daily.

In a nutshell, the plastic (called polyethilene therephthalate or PET) used in this bottles contains a potaintially carcinogenic element (something called diethilhydroxylamine or DEHA) the bottles are safe for one-time use only; if you must keep them longer, it should be or no more than a few days,week max, and keep them away from heat as well.

Repeated washing and rinsing can cause the plastic to break down and the carcinogens ( cancer- causing chemical agents) van leak in to the water you are drinking.Better to invest in water bottles that are really meant for mulipul euse
This is not something that we should be scrimping on. Those of you in family do please advise them especially children. please forward this information.

Prevention is better then cure.
