The Safety of Plastic Bottles

Plastic bottles and running go hand in hand, but how safe is the plastic used in your favorite running bottle? A recent report says it may not be that healthy and drinking from them could be leaching chemicals into your water or sports drink that could be causing infertility and even cancer.
Taken from a story on the Today show.
"But the "Today Show" report focused on a number system on the bottom of plastic bottles. The system is supposed to give you an indication of the chemicals in each bottle. Some scientists say a "1" on the bottle means it's safe. A 3, 6, or 7 would mean it's potentially unsafe."
Take a moment to look at the bottom of your bottle before your next run it might be time to trade that one in for maybe a safe one. But who's to say. If it not one thing it's another! I just want to got out for a run!! MAN!!
