May not be harmful, but just in case...

National Geographic's Green Guide has a very thorough (read: long) but easy-to-understand article, which discusses different sides of the BPA issue.

It also said that, in addition to baby bottles and Nalgene bottles, BPA can also leach into wine (from the vats, not the bottles) and into canned food and beverages. Great.

The BPA we injest may (or may not) cause diabetes and/or cancer and/or who knows what else.

The good news is that if you want to avoid it, they made you a list of ways to do just that - which you can skim if you don't have time to read the whole 4-page article.
