Recently, a "Do not drink refrigerated bottled water" blog post circulated, saying that plastic bottles will release dioxins when refrigerated in the refrigerator. In addition to carcinogenic toxicity, dioxins also have reproductive and genetic toxicity, which directly harm Health and life for future generations. In this regard, Yu Hongwei, a doctor of the School of Chemical Engineering at Shijiazhuang University, said that beverage bottles produced by regular manufacturers are polymer materials and do not contain dioxin ingredients, so dioxins are not released at all, and there is no scientific basis for rumors on the Internet.
On hot summer days, iced drinks have become a popular way to relieve heat and quench thirst. However, a message that "refrigeration of plastic bottles will release dioxins" was circulated on Weibo and WeChat. Such rumors have made countless netizens mistaken. Is it really impossible to drink iced drinks in summer? In this regard, some citizens have doubts.
A blog post "Don't drink refrigerated bottled water" on Weibo caused hot news among netizens. The blog post states: "Never store plastic bottles with water in the refrigerator because plastic bottles release dioxin under these conditions. Dioxins are a colorless, odorless, fat-soluble substance, so It is very easy to accumulate in organisms and cause serious harm to the human body. In addition to carcinogenic toxicity, it also has reproductive toxicity and genetic toxicity, which directly endangers the health and life of future generations. "
In response, Sun Xiaoyun, a professor at the School of Chemistry and Materials, Hebei Normal University, said that beverage bottles produced by regular manufacturers are polymer materials and do not contain dioxin, so dioxins are not released at all. There is no scientific basis for rumors on the Internet. . In addition, dioxin is a high melting point substance and is extremely difficult to dissolve in water. Only when plastic products such as polyvinyl chloride are incinerated, dioxins are produced by chemical reactions, which enter the respiratory tract through the air and cause poisoning.
Yu Hongwei reminded the public that in the summer * don't store too much mineral water in your car and make sure to drink it in a short time. The plastic products commonly used in homes should be replaced once every six months or so, because plastic products have been used for a long time, they are prone to chemical reactions and release harmful substances.
