Using Plastic Bottles and Plastic Containers for Gardening (food) is it safe?
This is more of an answer than a question, well actually a starting point for you do to do your own research.
I was just about to start using 2 liter plastic soda bottles and plastic tubs (hydroponics) for my garden. Then I began to wonder about BPA effects. As much as I wanted to use these and recycle, it doesn't look wise.
In addition to all the toxic effects of BPA, the out gasing increases with the temperature. ... ie Harvest time over 100 degs and out gasing right into root structure. Cutting or denting plastic also increases the out gasing.
Please do your own research about:
1) diseases linked to BPA, especially women
2) how the out gasing increasing with temp increase
Please understand I am not here to scare you, but rather to incourage you to do the research
