Does glass leech any chemicals into water like plastic does?



  1. 0 Votes

          Glass is considered a safe alternative to plastic bottles because it doesn’t leach harmful chemicals into the liquids stored in it. 

         The exception is lead crystal glass, which leaches lead into liquids it comes in contact with. Some scientists even link the prevalence of gout among the upper classes in previous centuries to the common practice of storing of alcoholic beverages in lead crystal containers.
