There is still controversy over the use of plastic water bottles, if they are safe for health, especially after many research has linked plastic to certain types of cancer. British news anchor Tom Prokar, 79, sparked the debate again when he said he did not drink plastic bottles after a leading cancer researcher pointed to her association with malignancies.Photo Plastic Water Cans
Do plastic water cans cause cancer
Prokar, who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2013, repeated the controversy over plastic water bottles to the front and revealed that he uses medical marijuana.
“The statement Brockar referred to is real, and we do not know if plastic water bottles are involved or not in cancer,” said Dr Joe Schwartz, a senior chemist and director of the University of MacGill’s Office of Science and Society in an interview with the Daily Mail.
“We can not prove this connection yet, but there is a lot of confusion about the materials from which the water bottles are made,” Schwarz said.
However, Schwarz said at the same time that the amount of the dose of carcinogen plays a key role in the incidence of malignant tumors, exposure to a carcinogen does not necessarily mean infection.
Schwarz explained that the main concern comes from a substance called “phosphoinol A,” a scientifically recognized carcinogen, used in the packaging of children before being withdrawn from the market, and despite the use in some refrigerators, but does not enter into the manufacture of water bottles that we drink Of which.
The water bottles currently used for drinking are manufactured from ethylene terrifthalate, which is safe to use once, so avoid packing again and use it for drinking.
