We've all by now heard the latest {coffee} buzz - PLASTIC IS NOT GOOD FOR US! But somehow we're still just as addicted to the plastic to-gos. {Not to mention the COFFEE - more on the adrenals effects later}. 

According to Science Daily, "the amount of dangerous bisphenol A (BPA) that leaches from plastic
bottles into the drinks they contain is most dependent on the liquid's
temperature, according to new research. When both new and used
polycarbonate drinking bottles were exposed to boiling hot water, BPA
was released 55 times more rapidly.

 

BPA an endocrine disruptor which mimics your body's natural
hormones. Hormones serve different functions throughout your body. BPA
has been shown to affect reproduction and brain development.

 

The increased release of BPA continued even after the hot liquid was
removed, meaning that even washing plastic cups or bottles in a hot
dishwasher could lead to increased BPA content in cold drinks."

EVEN MORE REASON TO BUY MY FAVORITE CUP!!!
