Heat can change the composition of a beverage if left in a plastic bottle
In the summer heat, a water bottle is an indispensable accessory that we carry with us. Instant refreshments are welcome in an overheated car but beware of contents that you have not drunk before.
Do not leave the water and other beverages in plastic bottles in a car parked in the sun as heat may change the composition of the beverage in them. Plastic bottles, when heated, release the harmful substance bisphenol A, which mimics estrogen in the body, causes hormonal imbalance, and is associated with many other diseases, such as obesity and diabetes.
Hazardous metals are also released
Heat can change the composition of a beverage if left in a plastic bottle and forgotten in a car parked in the sun. Specifically, if the air temperature is 86° f, it will reach 113°f in a car after only half an hour, and in summer the temperatures in the vehicles will reach as high as 122 to 155 degrees.
Under such extreme conditions, it is not advisable to even sit in the car, let alone drink the drinks from plastic bottles that are in it. At high temperatures, plastic packaging also causes the release of antimony metal, which can also be very harmful to the body.
