Plastic containers may be deadly for your brain. Canadian researchers have found that Bisphenol A (BPA), the chemical used in making plastic containers, might be responsible for
impairing many brain functions such as learning and remembering.
They also fear that it could be a factor behind Alzheimer's, schizophrenia and depression.
BPA is globally used in making plastic water bottles, baby food bottles, food containers and dental prostheses
In their study, the researchers found that BPA might be leaking into the solid or liquid foods kept in the plastic containers.
When these foods and liquids are consumed, they said, the chemical might be getting into the human system, disrupting communication between brain neurons which is vital in understanding and remembering.
In a study by Hulda Clark she found that once the water had been drunk then the bottle was safe for re-drinking. So if you recycle these bottles they are healthy then for drinking water.
So please try to avoid the new water bottles unless you want to spend time as a not so alert person.
