    True or Not True about Breast Cancer and plastic bottle water in left a car
    I had this conversation with one of my co-works today regarding Breast Cancer. She told me that you women can get breast cancer by bottle water left in a car. I don't believe it. Is there anyone who can answer this question please?

    I have never heard that before. I don't see why bottled water left in your car would give you breast cancer. All it is is just warm water, basically.

    Bottled water travels in large and small trucks just to get to the store

    I hope this isn't true because I leave bottles of water in my car and drink them all the time. I always keep at least one in my car.

    Hunter,

    The false fear stems from 'carninogens' leeching from the plastic into the water.
