BPA only an issue if heated?

Read somewhere that bpa containers were only an issue if exposed to heat if thats true why was there such a freak out about nalgene bottles? Who the heck is dumping hot water in there?

BPA isn't an issue at all, except maybe for babies in specific circumstances

Yep, Health Canada's ruling stated that the amount of chemicals leeching into the water only posed a risk to infants - but most retailers bowed to public pressure and just started refunding old water bottles left right and centre.

Personally - that just meant a whole lot of cheap water bottles for me.

The new Nalgenes are BPA free - but from what I heard, they aren't as durable. And metal bottlles might be ok on a desk, but I'm not a fan of bringing them on a camping trip.

Personally I never understood the scare... I never put anything hot or warm in plastic containers. Only glass.

I stay away if at all possible. I have no desire to introduce estrogenic compounds into my body at any age. I'm nearing midlife times and already have itty bitty man titties I dont need help.
