I thought they had a "shelf life" before they were bad to drink out of?

http://chemistry.about.com/od/foodchemistryfaqs/f/bottled-water-shelf-life.htm

Answer: Although bottled water has an expiration date, it doesn't actually go bad. Why is there an expiration date on a product that doesn't go bad? This is because New Jersey requires all food and beverages, including water, to carry an expiration date on its packaging. It doesn't matter if you don't live in New Jersey... your water may carry an expiration date anyway to make it easier to standardize packaging. Some bottled water only carries its bottling date or a 'best by' date. These dates are helpful because the flavor of the water will change over time as it absorbs chemicals from its packaging. The flavor will not necessarily be bad, but it may be noticeable.

It is the fault of a certain person in NJ

What about cereal killers? Nobody has mentioned cereal killers! Apparently they can kill you.
Although I dont really see how.Dump a little milk on them and they get all soggy. Gross, but hardly dangerous.....

Happy - we don't recycle here either; however I take my recyclable (is that a word) stuff home and put it there.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes was one of the best movie titles of all time. The only thing truly deadly about it, though, was that catchy song "Puberty Love". However, I've never been able to track down a solid recording of it.

Puberty.
Puberty love.
There's nothing liiiiike
Puberty love.

I'd like to know how opening, drinking, re-filling and drinking water/tea/whatever from a plastic bottle makes any difference. I thought heat had to be involved to activate the BPA.

FWIW, I reuse them all the time...I fill them up with water, put in fridge and wallah! Cold water at the ready in whichever fridge I am near at the moment.

i read that reusing them was actually a germ hazard, and you shouldn't do it. Don't recall anything about BPA.

It may have something to do with the age of the container

Yep...refilling was a no no for germs.
BPA was a heat problem.

I reuse them for a few weeks (always inside, never left out in my car or anything like that) then recycle them.

but you transfer those germs to others when you refill, and you also get germs from others when refilling...

:Surprises no one by having concerns about refilled water bottles:

Refilled plastic water bottles are deadly killers, because staph and strep throat that you catch from yourself (bacteria thrive and multiply in the reused water bottle...what started as a couple of bad guys in your mouth end up as a real mosh pit in that 24-hour-old water bottle).

Health experts from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) say refilling plastic water or soda bottles without thoroughly washing them could increase one's chances of contracting staph infections, strep throat, meningitis, and other illnesses. http://www.worldissues360.com/index.php/...and-bags-56534/

Refilled plastic water bottles are deadly killers, because heat is only one thing that causes the chemicals to leach into the drink. Normal wear and tear, the washing process, the aging process, any damage to the plastic all of this can cause the chemicals to leach, if in fact you for some reason believe that no chemicals are leaching during your first drink. The disposable ones seem pretty easy to damage, as they are now made so cheaply and thinly that they crinkle every time they are lifted) and since all types of damage, not just heat, can trigger the release of chemicals, reusing them seems risky.

By the way, the big water bottles delivered by a truck are certainly not new and have been exposed to heat, sunlight, and lots of wear and tear.

Immune systems are like muscles! You've got to exercise that sucker every now and then! Be wild soemtimes! Drink some water from a reused bottle! Use the 5 second rule! Lick a stamp! You dont even have to mail anything! Just do it to live dangerously!! grin

so you drink by scooping water with your hands?
There are germs on everything, whether it's freshly washed or manufactured or whatever.
Chemicals surround us.
Thankfully, most of us have good immune systems that fight whatever our body doesn't like.
But in the end, something's gonna get ya' and you're going to die just like the rest of us.

I know you posted your version of thread rules but reading your stuff is like driving by an accident on the highway. Gapers block trigged this response.

Comply - I'm surprised you can leave your house. I honestly don't worry about all of this stuff - well most of it anyway. Do I reuse water bottles - sometimes. Do I wash my hands - very often. I try not to worry about every little thing that could possibly hurt me or make me sick.

I'm on BBB1's and Truff's bandwagons - and try not to live in fear of everything - like my mother does. Life's too short for that.

I have been re-using and re-filling the same Dasani bottled water, water bottle for over a year. I have left it in my hot car, I have put it in the freezer when I want a cold drink, and I have gone weeks without washing it.

My wife threw it away last week after seeing something about the leaching on the Today show.

Surely my days are numbered.
