Yeah, I figure it's like radiation (and I'm not being sarcastic), where you can be exposed to it for short periods and your body can clean it up. Anyway, something like 95% of people have detectable--but not necessarily harmful--amounts of BPAs in their system.
A can of soup over a camp fire (boiling over and catching on fire, and being left on a rock overnight only to cause a mouse to drown in it, in my case) once in a while won't be a problem.

Instead all I get is a bunch of people telling me I'm an idiot and that I should stop hugging trees ( pretty much )
Sorry for thinking this board was full of open minded people ready for discussion about things.
Well your post was going okay at first until you started listing your hippie-esque solutions of completely abandoning all plastic bottles in lieu of metal and wood
For me, I could not care less about regulation in the water bottle industry because the concept of paying extra just to bottle essentially tap water (or from what you're saying, worse-than-tap-water) seems absolutely ridiculous to me. I even use the old joke of telling people that Evian water is just "Naive" backwards and for good reason.
On a related note, I remember one stuck-up newscaster on Channel 4 who proudly stated "oh I only drink bottled water" and was given a taste test between tap water and her bottled water--and ultimately chose the tap water as tasting better. Owned bitch!
