"Bisphenol A, widely used in such products as reusable water bottles, baby bottles, food-can linings and water pipes, has been shown to affect reproduction and brain development in animal studies. "

I started to laugh when I read that. My wife asked me what was so funny, and when I told her she rolled her eyes and said "thats what you get for teaching junior high school, you start to think like them".

Now all the pro athletes will be drinking their gatorade boiled first and allowed to cool for the added estrogen :D
Amounts of the chemical, which acts like the hormone estrogen, also leached out in higher quantities at the higher temperature, said study co-author Scott Belcher, an associate professor of pharmacology.
