        Subject: [CommunityMedicine of India] mineral water bottle....are they dangerous

        Dear Friends,
        I was going through my pediatric journal when I came
        across
        this article and thought it was worth sharing with all
        of you since we
        all are probably reusing the mineral water bottle.
        It all happened in DUBAI, when a 12 year old girl died

        after a long usage (16 months )of SAFA mineral water
        bottle , as she
        used to carry same fancy bottle to her school daily.
        In a nutshell, the Plastic (called Polyethylene
        terephthalate or PET)used in these bottles contain a
        carcinogenic
        element (sometimes called diethylhydroxylamin e or
        DEHA).These bottels
        are safe for one time use only .Repeated washing &
        rinsing espicially with hot water can cause the
        plastic molecule to break down & cancer
        causing chemical agents are released in the water you
        are drinking .
        HOW TO AVOID: Cheak on the bottom of the bottle there
        will be a triangle sign with a number written . If the
        number is higher then or equal to FIVE it can be
        safely used .But numbers below five are unsafe.
        Most of the mineral water have number one
        PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO AS MANY AS POSSIABLE .

        practising paediatrics in Gorakhpur, UP. I am sure
        that you will explore further and will try to read
        more references. Please take care and live a healthy
        and safe life.
