Aquaclip on Water BottleIs drinking cold water during or after exercise good for you or bad for you? Does the temperature of the water matter at all? Believe it or not - it does matter, at least a little. Find out the facts on how the temperature of your exercise drinks might matter. And, no, drinking cold water after a meal doesn't cause cancer. But it can be a good thing to drink cold water when you are exercising.

And while we're on the drinking myths - yes, it is safe to reuse your disposable plastic water bottle. Not to mention that reusing your bottle is the best thing to do for the environment, rather than filling up the landfills with them. My bottle here has an Aquaclip attached to make it easy to carry on any waistband.

you should really just use a non-disposable bottle like a Nalgene, those are really the best for the environment.

Re-using a plastic bottle more than once is bad for you. Using a non-disposable bottle isn’t “better” than a plastic bottle, it’s the best for not filling up landfills.

I drink from the Nalgene bottles currently & yes they are better than regular plastic bottles from a re-usable standpoint but they unfortunately are a #7 poly & will eventually start leaching their chemicals into the water from what I am told. I’ve been told by my sister-in-law that I need to switch to Aluminum or Stainless steel bottles.Everyday it’s something else! AAAHHH!!! ;-)

Stay away from eating or drinking from plastic. There is bisphenol A in plastic – even in Nalgene bottles. Bad stuff…
