Is your water bottle killing you?  First, came the news about the toxic baby bottles and, then, Nalgene and Camelbak and all of my once favorite sports bottle companies phased out their polycarbonate lines (all the while denying their products have anything wrong with them).  Then, everyone came out with BPA-free plastics.
