Today, I’m talking more about why we should avoid plastic water bottles after reading @natgeo  article on this topic.

Has anyone else had a super ☀️hot summer? ☀️When the temperature outside is rising, many people turn to ᴘʟᴀꜱᴛɪᴄ ᴡᴀᴛᴇʀ ʙᴏᴛᴛʟᴇꜱ to stay hydrated. But disposable water bottles are made of ᴘʟᴀꜱᴛɪᴄ. And these plastics can get into the water that we ingest, exposing us to dangerous chemicals like ʙᴘᴀ & ᴘʜᴛʜᴀʟᴀᴛᴇs. As these water bottles are exposed to heat, more of the chemicals move into the drinking water, exposing us to even more ᴛᴏxɪᴄ ᴄʜᴇᴍɪᴄᴀʟs. 🧪🧪🧪

The FDA has ʙᴀɴɴᴇᴅ the use of BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups. Why isn’t this enough?
✅”BPA free” does not mean safe. These products often contain similar compounds with even less safety data than BPA, like BPA-S
✅BPA is still legal to add to other products like water bottles
✅Although one single exposure is likely safe, the fact that we have countless exposures to multiple chemicals throughout our day with plastics, increases the risk of harm .

So take the advice of the amazing docs who have participated in this campaign so far. Show us your reusable water bottle made out of metal or glass! 🥤🍶And stay cool this summer!☀️

Thank you for all the wonderful support for this campaign! I’m so excited that the media and medicine are paying more attention to this important topic!
