Bottled water in the sun.

Hi there Doc, just wanted to ask if the below e-mail is authentic??
Thanks

WARN YOUR WIVES/GIRLFRIENDS AND DAUGHTERS

Bottled water in your car.....very dangerous, woman!!!!
This is how Sheryl Crow got breast cancer. She was on the Ellen show and
said this same exact thing. This has been identified as the most common
cause of the high levels in breast cancer, especially in Australia .

A friend whose mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. The Doctor
told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

The doctor said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain
chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. So please be careful and do not
drink bottled water that has been left in a car, and, pass this on to all
the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know and be
aware and just might save us!!!! The heat causes toxins from the plastic to
leak into the water and they have found these toxins in breast tissue. Use
a stainless steel Canteen or a glass bottle when you can!!!

Let every one that has a wife/girfriend and daughter know please.

Dear Naas
I too have seen this e-mail, but at the moment I am not sure if the claims are true or not. I am actually waiting for a colleague who is an expert on cancer to publish a statement regarding the potential carcinogenic properties of various plastics (bottles, cling wrap, microwave containers, etc) that we use regularly.
My advice would be to stick to glass bottles and containers until we have greater clarity.
Best regards
DietDoc
