    I was wondering about the possibilty of chemical leeching from colored 2 liter bottles such as Sprite or Mt. Dew compared to the clear ones. :dunno:

    if you're worried about leaching, it's the plastic, NOT the tint that is the culprit & usually it is because of excessive unltraviolet light (ie sunlight) and thermal exposure causing accelerated breakdown & PET plastic is not nearly as bad as many others

    here's a start for info
