Is it safe to drink from PET stainless steel bottles ?

Is it safe to drink from PET stainless steel bottles ?

It has come to my attention that a number of recyclable plastic products are dangerous because certain endocrine disruptor, metabolic disruptor or carcinogenic substances leach out from them.

This happens generally with plastic bottles with an SPI recycling code of 7 (marked within the little triangle on bottles). The 7 means it uses "other" resins as material, where "other" can mean some really bad things like BPA.

But how safe are soft drink bottles to drink from repeatedly, over time ? These bottles are marked SPI code of 1, which means they are made from PET, or Polyethylene Terephthalate.

I've read reports that it is safe, but these reports come from parties directly or indirectly interested in its widespread use.

What do you believe ?

I quit doing it. I got a stainless steel "bottle" from Klean Kanteen and use that. Better for the environment anyway.
