Drinking plasticizers and small quantities of polyethylene scares me 
more than a broken pipe. Did you read the research a while back about 
how pregnant women exposed to polyethylene have sons with deformed 
genitalia? The plastics council said something to the effect of, "well, 
ya they were slightly deformed, but the study didn't say it actually 
hurt them."
