Could someone explain to me in layman's terms what antimony is and how
and what it leaches from?  Does it volatize - under what conditions?
I've read that it leaches from PET.  Does that mean that every time one
drinks from a PET container they are ingesting some amount of it?  What
about the other plastics? Does it leach from them and under what
conditions?  I'm thinking especially of Tupperware and Zip Lock bags.
Also, does it bioaccumulate?
