Everyone in my office has been out with colds this week so this morning I decided that I was going to start taking Vitamin C. I went to take the pill, washed it down with water from the same bottle that I've been re-using for about 2 months and after I had already taken a big drink, I realized that there was mold on the lid. Do you guys know if drinking water out of this moldy water bottle is going to make me sick? My boyfriend said that mold is what cures sickness (like penicillin) and not to worry about it, but I'm looking for a second opinion.
