Decide for yourself. Bis-Phenol A is an additive in clear, hard plastics. It is used in water bottles, baby bottles, soda can liners, etc. and is known to leach into the foods and liquids which are stored in it.

Bisphenol A is found in most plastic food containers today. Not only is it found in plastic containers, but also in the lining of most cans.

This is not only harmful to the male reproductive system, but has been found to also stimulate breast cancer growth in women. Knowing this, it should be of no surprise that the sperm count of the average Western male is on a steady decline as many males are becoming more and more feminine. What most people don't know is that Bisphenol A was actually considered as the form of estrogen to be used in estrogen pills going back to the 1930s.
