Hormones in Plastic Water Bottles

Advertisement

Researchers in Germany believe that plastic water bottles pose a health risk to consumers. During their analysis, they 'found evidence of estrogenic compounds leaching out of the plastic packaging into the water.' When compared with glass bottles and composite packaging, plastic bottles showed estrogen levels of 78%.

Is there a test kit that you or I can use to measure hormone levels in our foods? Food safety technology is continually developing, including using x-rays and e-beam irradiation to kill pathogens. Is a day coming when such technology will be accessible to the average person?

So now I can't trust a bottle of water from the 7-11?  How frustrating. One of you smart entrepreneurs needs to start a business selling food safety test kits that are usable by the average consumer.
