Plastic Water Bottles

By Carol | May 22, 2009

Dear Dr. Carol,

I was in your office recently for my first appointment, and at your receptionist offered me one of your plastic water bottles to take home after my appointment.  I am wondering if the plastic bottle is safe.


Dear Betty,

According to the JAMA, Journal of American Medical Association, September 16, 2008,

The BAD PLASTIC numbers are 3, 6, and 7.

The GOOD PLASTIC numbers are1, 2, 4, and 5.

Our bottles are labeled #1   Yes, the good plastic.

Dr. Carol
