This is good to know.

Health experts are warning you and me to stop drinking leftover water that may be in the soft plastic bottles.

Yes, we are all guilty of cracking a new bottle of water open, and then minutes/hours later you come back to that bottle to resume drinking it.

Well, now health experts say that we could be putting ourselves in danger upon drinking the leftover water from the plastic bottle.

According to researchers at the University of Copenhagen, when water is left in the bottle for hours, chemicals begin to build up in the water that is still in the bottle.

The study found hundreds of substances build up in the water that is left behind and some can cause issues with hormones and potentially cause cancer.

The best way to avoid this is by pouring your water from the plastic bottles and into other containers that may not be plastic.

One of the best things you can do healthwise is to drink plenty of water throughout the day. So, drink plenty, but if you aren't consuming the whole bottle in one sitting, remove it from the plastic bottle for your own safety.
