Bottles made of plastic in the sun make scientists guess to consume water from unmarked bottles, and generally not in the Sun to make plastic bottles.

Because dissolve more substances from the material with increasing temperatures and reach into the liquid. UV radiation also accelerates this process. In particular disposable PET bottles but in higher Doses as applicable carcinogenic acetaldehyde from. Also if the concentration is well below the limits deemed to be harmful, acetaldehyde affects the taste of the water in any case. The water tastes of plastic, so then you should dispose of prefer it. The EU Directive 89/109/EEC “and the food consumer goods Act (here paragraph 31LMBG)” make the demands that no substances may be transferred on the food packaging for food. Mineral water bottled ensure that this is not the case.

Stiftung Warentest “claims the opposite. A study of 2002 was noted, degradation products of the PET go over such as acetaldehyde, in the bottled beverage (network Scientific studies have shown that food and water can be contaminated with components of the plastic containers through migration (Tice and McGuinness, 1987, Ashby, 1988, Gilbert et al, 1988).
