Sachet 'pure' Water Exposed To Heat Can Be Cancerous by etunoman76(m): 12:47pm On Mar 12, 2013
Director of Community and Public Medicine at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital (NAUTH), Professor Amobi Ilika has warned that sachet water exposed to heat beyond room temperature could be cancerous.
He said the polythene bags contain cancerous materials that are harmful and when exposed to heat, melt into the water

What cancerous materials Hope you didn't quote the professor verbatim. I agree with him tho. Plastics containing food should not be exposed to heat cos the organic polymers (ethylene, vinyl etc) could melt and be incoroprated into the food. Thats why its not advisable to microwave food/drinks in plastic containers.
