My dog won't drink out of his outside water bowl (filled from the hose). He'll usually wait to come inside for "kitchen" water. Now I know why!

Sounds like your dog has better sense than some of the posters here.

And that's why we are growing "Wussies". 20 Year from now these kids will be the same people in the Restaurant who take an hour to order.. "Let see, does that have Soy? How about Gluten? Oh wait, no I'm allergic to that", etc.. etc..

"The Food and Drug Administration defines BPA as an industrial chemical used to make hard, clear plastic. "

Hoses are made of hard clear plastic ?

I have drank from the water hose, and that water came out of a systern, which sits in a concrete room under the ground for weeks, and God knows what kind of germs it collected from the roof and gutters. Im still here.

When I was a kid, all the hoses were made of rubber so they wouldn't have had the current toxic plasticizers. But, who knows, maybe they had worse stuff in them (did these scientists test rubber hoses? or do I have the last rubber hose in existence? it's at least 40 years old). The worst was getting a mouthful of warm water that tasted like rubber if you didn't run the water long enough before you drank some.

I wonder how much we paid in tax dollars for this study? I can't think of anyone that has not drank from a water hose and they are still around.

Lol I just took a few drinks the other day from it after watering (It was in the mid 90's here). I've been drinking out of my hose since I was a kid. As far as I know, I did well in school, and everything else seems fine. Either they are over-reacting, or I really should stop drinking from the hose (not that I do it all the time).

i was a kid in the 70's where i had no xbox or nintendo, no computers or cel phones, and boy did i drink from the yard hose. it was delicious. those were the good old days. the pure days. the peaceful days. so STOP lying!!!!!!!

Blah, blah, blah. When I was a kid, we always drank from the garden hose, and we didn't die.
This generation is totally sick from over-zealous government--oh, hoses are not protected by the water authority. Duh, who cares? Does every single minute of our lives have to be protected by BIG DADDY government. When I first remember, we didn't even have seat belts in cars, and I certainly never wore a helmet skating or bicycle riding. I wasn't told that a tall slide was dangerous. I remember climbing up a waterfall behind our school, and I was scared I would fall, but I didn't. I lived to do it another day! Kids today are just plain wusses!
