Another reason for BPA-Free Water Bottles for Yoga

BPA Free Waterbox BottlesBPA Contributes to Love Handles

The bad news on BPA just keeps rolling in. Lynn Johnson Hasselberger, of myEarth blog, just posted an article on how BPA might be contributing to America's love handles. Studies show that rats whose mothers were exposed to BPA while pregnant suffered disrupted metabolic function that resulted in higher rates of obesity once out of the womb. This occurred despite their eating a healthy diet after their births.

BPA is a well-known hormone disruptor, and has been implicated in heart disease, diabetes and reproductive problems. It is found in many products:  Bottled water, plastic linings of cans, and some cash register receipts are the most common. While there have been no human studies yet that link between BPA exposure and obesity, with skyrocketing childhood obesity rates, it seems sensible to be aware of how to avoid this potential risk.

The good news is there are a few companies that do not use BPA in the linings of their cans. Among them are Eden, Native Forest, and some items from Vital Choice, Wild Planet and Trader Joe's. You can read more here.

Hugger Mugger also carries a variety of BPA-free water bottles and hot drink cups. Here's a list:  PureWater 2GO, Waterbox Hydration Bottle, Waterbox Glass Bottle, PureWater 2GO Filter, Stainless Steel Water Bottle.

Your own filtered tap water is healthier and far less expensive than bottled water, and all those bottles represent a whole lot of petroleum and waste. It pays to be aware!
