Keep drinking the water

It must be summer if the 'plastic water bottles' hoax is starting to appear in my referrer logs again.

It seems the 2007-2008 round of the hoax contains an embellishment: that Sheryl Crow's 2006 breast cancer was the direct result of drinking water from a plastic bottle exposed to sunlight.

Look; it's utter rubbish, okay? Yes, even though it does namecheck a celebrity, normally an infallible indicator of accuracy. If you receive the 'warning' by e-mail, do not forward it to anyone or post it to your blog, as you'd be merely perpetuating a bandwidth virus and potentially scaring people unnecessarily.

Don't take my word for it: the issue has now been addressed at Snopes.
