SIGG Bottles, bad news for your body.
Review by: ilovealiens, 2008-03-14
Aside from the obvious problem of having a water bottle that looks identical to your fuel bottle, I assume you tried sigg due to the Nalgene recall?? However, it seems that people have forgotten about the toxicity of plastic bottles.
"Bisphenol A is added to hard, clear polycarbonate plastics like those used in reusable water bottles and baby bottles....Research on lab animals has linked the chemical to changes to the genital tract, prostate enlargement, declined testosterone levels, pre-cancerous breast cells, prostate cancer, early puberty in females and hyperactivity." Aluminum bottles pose severe health risks, and there is a proven link between aluminum intake and alzheimers disease. The veg based liner in the Sigg bottles wears away and chips when dented exposing you to the aluminum.
The best option is a stainless steel bottle, such as "Guyot
bottles" or "kleen Kanteens"
Using an actual fuel bottle poses other risks as the lining is made not for drinking out of, but rather to prevent the fuel from damaging the inside of the bottle.
