I began having some horrible digestive issues last month. I finally bit the bullet and went to a GI guy. He ran some test to exclude anything serious, and finally deduced that it was being caused by bottled water I left out of the fridge and kept drinking for a few days. Who knew you could get a parasight from this? I've routinely done this and never picked up anything before. Just a warning that you should refrigerate bottled water and other beverages after opening up.
Warning: I got a parasight from drinking bottled water that had been left out for several days.

Yikes, op. I don't reuse bottled water in plastic, because of the chemicals that leech into the water after time. I got mono from the gym years ago. I was shaking after a workout, and my water bottle hit the nozzle. Mono can live on surfaces for hours. Gross.

You could get a lurgy or two if particularly you left the bottle in direct sunlight. There are a few nasties in bottled water that once opened and not chilled multiply enough to cause stomach upsets.
You might also not want to see the inside of a water cooler just before it gets cleaned. One memorable one I decommissioned looked like it had been attacked by algae.

This is just the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. Unless you took the actual water bottle to a lab and had it tested, there is absolutely no way you could know that it was the culprit.
Did you handle money during this time? Did you open a door? Use a public washroom? Press a button in an elevator? Take public transit? Eat at a restaurant, or eat, really, anywhere? Did you go to work? Use a phone or a computer keyboard? Did you go to see a movie or have a drink at a bar? Did you shake hands with anyone?
Every single one of those things is thousands of times more likely to have caused your problem.

Ugh, I am so over people everyone moving away from plastic bottled water because of chemicals. It is already so hard to drink the daily recommended amount of H2O, and plastic makes water easy to carry anywhere.
Im not drinking water out the faucet that hasn't had a chance to distill. And the thought glass bottles being the next thing is just annoying, expensive and hazardous. Youre damned if you do and damned if you dont.
|by Anonymous||reply 53||07/23/2013|
R53 no matter how long you leave water after it comes out of the faucet it won't spontaneously distill - you'd need a whole distillation set-up for that. Do you mean filtered water? Just fill a filter jug in the morning, put it in the fridge, take the previous day's jug from the fridge and fill your refillable water bottle from that.

I had a reusable water bottle with a flip-up straw. I rinsed it out every day and thought that was enough. Eventually, I started having tummy troubles. This went on for a couple of weeks - it wasn't anything horrible, just grumbling and loose stools. I finally took the straw out of where it was hooked to the bottle and attacked it with a q-tip. It looked like it was full of chocolate frosting. I pitched the bottle and my stomach was fine after that.

I keep a bottled water on my nightstand and take several drinks from it throughout the night. I leave it there during the day so sometimes it can be there for a week or more. I've never caught a parasight although I did shit out a parakeet and now I know where it came from!

R71, I do the same thing only I don't drink the water out of the bottle weeks later. I always buy huge bags of ice from the supermarket and my ice box is always stocked with ice. During the day and well into the evening I ways have a glass full ice and water. No matter how gold it is, I have to have my ice water with a straw. I don't like to drink from a glass.
People who say there is nothing wrong with tap water are nuts and delusional! There is a difference in taste in bottled water verses tap water. Tap water has a lot of chemicals in it. Check out the Brita water filters that connect to faucets and observe the filters thereafter the tap water streamed through, it's cruddy and repulsive.
OP, I never heard that about water although I have heard you never ever leave your plastic water bottles in direct sunlight. For example, like the hot direct intense sunlight that streams into your car.The hot sun ignites the chemicals that are contained within the plastic of your water bottle.
I was sick with major food poisoning a couple a months ago ,and I have never been sick like that in my life! It was truly hell on earth and I had to be rushed to the hospital. The food posing came from something I ate ,but not from consuming water from a plastic water bottle.I hope whatever you have, I hope you get better OP, take care.
