My 14 yr o son developed a habit of chewing on plastic bottle caps and the plastic ring of ther bbottle. Health effects, chemicals or reason for urge?
Toxins are in: Plastic. Don't panic but try to get him to switch to something else, e.g., gum, mints, etc. Never microwave food w/saran wrap. It releases the toxins. Please don't drink bottles of water that have been sitting around. The toxins eventually migrate to the water. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Can you get botulism from a glass beer bottle if the cap was not sealed properly? I dropped the bottle. Can it grow in alcohol?
Time ForDog Botulism: If they could, I suppose they'd be pretty happy bacteria!! I don't think the alcohol concentration in beer would be adequate to kill Clostridia spores or live bacteria but on the other hand, that's not really the right environment for either to grow. So unless you dumped a bunch of dirt in the bottle and buried it for a week or two would much happen. Any doubts? Just give some to the dog. ...Read more
