I'm guessing you probably drink a lot of water.
My city's tap water does not seem too safe to drink and does the bottled water have estrogen in it?
What kind of water do you drink?
Estrogen & Estrogenic Chemicals in Plastic Water Bottles!
I'm don't do tap, that's for sure!
A while back the Associated Press reported on a study done on the drinking water of 24 metropolitan areas.
They found that the water in these cites had trace amounts of many drugs, including Prozac, ibuprofen, antibiotics, and yes, they even found estrogen in the tap water in San Francisco.
Sewage treatment facilities do a great job of removing removing bacteria and other pathogens from our drinking water, but it seems they haven't found a way to get rid of all the chemicals.
So what can you do?
Many people make the fatal mistake of replacing tap with water contained in cheap plastic bottles.
Problem is, this water is polluted with estrogenic chemicals.
BPA and phthalates are used to soften and condition the plastic bottles.
According to Martin Wagner, an ecotoxicologist at Goethe University in Frankfurt....
If you drink water from plastic bottles, you have a high probability of drinking estrogenic compounds.
Another researcher, Leonard Sax, MD, PhD, believes that these chemicals cause delayed puberty and lost motivation in young men, another sign that males in the modern world are being overrun by estrogen and estrogen mimicking compounds.
In the US, plastic bottles are labeled with a recycling number.
Some plastics are much worse than others.
If the bottle is stamped with the number 1, 3, or 7, avoid it at all costs, as these are the worst offenders.
Also keep in mind that if any bottle is left out in the sun, or heated in any way, it will leach chemicals at a much higher rate.
Where do I get my water?
I'm old school.
If you've been around for a while, you probably remember when the sparkletts truck was loaded down with GLASS, not plastic bottles.
They can be tough to find, but they're out there.
I drive to my local grocery store, and fill it from the purified water machine located in front of the store.
The water is filtered through charcoal, exposed to ultra violet light, and goes through a reverse osmosis process.
Sure, it's time consuming, inconvenient, and a pain in the you know what,
Nobody said hanging onto your manhood was easy.
Thanks for your question!
