does freezing water in plastic bottles cause cancer?

Yes, I am not sure what type but my health teacher told me that it could!

Everything can give you cancer.

If it's a nalgene bottle or has a 7 in a triangle at the bottom of the bottle it's been linked to cause cancer, so it depends.

Not sure about frozen water, but I did hear that if a bottle of water heats up it causes cancer. There was a news story about not leaving your bottled water in the car in the summer.

EVERYTHING causes cancer these days...

everything causes cancer nowadays.


Im AWSOME

Yes, its due to the chemical called dioxide.


ಌMemsterಌ
I don't know for sure, but I heard not to let the water temperature in the plastic get extremely hot or cold (frozen) as the plastic breaks down with extreme temperature changes. It is better to be safe than sorry. I know they do make special ice trays for bottled water ice. The ice freezes in cylinders so it will fit in the bottle.

It can... when you freeze the bottle, chemicals in it are released that enter the water. I wouldn't worry though, there are signs just about everywhere that say if you are outside you are at an increased risk of cancer. Just don't go around doing stupid stuff and you will be fine; freezing your water bottle will do an insignificant amount of damage.


natashav2003
what???? im at a loss....are you asking if the plastic causes cancer cuz water im certain is pretty much cancer free....wow...no ! frozen water in a plastic bottle shouldnt cause cancer anymore than orange juice in a coffe mug.

maybe, the chance you'll get cancer is like the chance of winning the lottery though, the cancer lottery.


Brian
um idk that but i know that it is not good for you because when it freezes it takes some of the plastic properties and puts it into the water

Snopes says no

No.

There are a number of myths circulating about plastic bottles and cancer, and just about all of them stem from hoax emails.

Here are the facts about all the 'plastic bottles and cancer' scares - the freezing one, the heating nonsense etc:
