    Bisphenol-A (BPA) is the chemical that is most often discussed concerning plastic bottles. This chemical has been found to interupt proper hormonal function and sexual development. However, phthalates are also present in plastic bottles (as well as many other plastic and rubber products) and have been found to also cause adverse effects. This chemical is used to give plastics flexibility and can also be found in pencil erasers, shoes and childrens toys. Phthalates have been found to have negative effects similar to BPA, including male infertility.
