I heard that drinking water that has sat in a car and got hot can give women breast cancer... is that true?

i heard the same thing, but anyone that bottles anything keeps it stored in a hot ware house before shipping out. so therefore i don't understand why anyone would make a statement as this. its virtually impossible. i also heard that they put a small amount of arsenic in the water to keep it preserved. so why would anyone buy bottled water? all the water that we drink comes from recycled sewage. dosen't that sound nasty. i have well water, some things seep into the ground i dont know what i don't care where we eat or what we drink we take the chance of being poisoned in some fashion. we just have to live our lives. when it comes our time, life will cease to exist for each and everyone of us.

Think about how that water sets in a transport truck to go to the grocery store. Do you think it gets refrigeration during delivery to the store.. NOT!
You never know how long it sets on the isles in the warehouse heating up and cooling off for sometimes weeks, getting ready for the long trip in the back of the hot truck to the grocery store.
People are so "fooled" by the idea of "bottled" water being better for them.

I heard a rumor that reusing a plastic bottle over and over (especially exposed to all that heat) was suppose to increase the chances of cancer...I do know the study said the bacteria is higher in those bottles.

There are a lot of different factors that can lead to breast cancer including your genes and being overweight in post menopausal. Have never heard of the water in a hot car one. I sometimes drink water or coke that has sat in a hot car.

No, that is just one of those rumors that gets spread around. No one knows for sure what causes breast cancer but hot water is not a cause.

Water bottles made today are pretty inert, which means there isn't much transference of the plastic molecules to water, if any. I would worry more about the bacteria levels in reused water bottles. Washing helps in between refills. Better to use water bottles specifically made for reusing, such as Nalgene or sports bottles. Wash daily.

I actually heard this from Sheryl Crow on the Oprah Winfrey Show. She said that plastic molecules in the bottle, when heated, will transfer to the water. These plastics are said to be carcinogens (cancer causing) but from what I understand, breast cancer is not the only type of cancer they are attributed to causing. Perhaps whoever told you heard it from Sheryl Crow as well, as she is recovering from breast cancer and was talking about it on the show. For the same reason, you should not use plastic wrap in a microwave to cover your food. It heats up and transfers to the food it touches. Always take frozen dinners out of their plastic containers. I will check it out on snopes.com, but I would think Sheryl would know, since she has had the terrible experience of breast cancer. She was also engaged to Lance Armstrong, so she was privy to a lot of information.

yeah. my mom told me the same thing!!
it's bad!!!!

No, it's an urban myth/legend, originating from a hoax email that was widely circulated last year.

These links give the facts behind these rumours/hoaxes about plastic water bottles and breast cancer. As you'll see, Oprah Winfrey's company, Harpo, denies that Sheryl Crow ever made those remarks
