Plastic bottles should be out in the sun because the plastic will melt in the water and it tastes better and better for you.
sara_ann_dee

Con

If plastic bottles are left out in the sun and melt into the water - the materials in the plastic which were melted will disolve in thr water - contaminating it. It is not good to have plastic in water if people are going to consume it for energy - they will become sick.

Please provide proof of your claim. Liquid plastic is very healthy. I have a PhD so I know what I'm talking about.

Okay...

(Research that's found potential health risks from bisphenol A (BPA), a common chemical in food packaging, has many concerned.
BPA stands out, according to Vandenberg, for its ability to disrupt the functions of hormones -- especially estrogen. This is found in 90% of people's bodies. It enters our bloodstream and affects hormones).

...Start by defending that.

Anything I say is correct so your link means nothing because I have a PhD. I love to drink liquid plastic. In fact I drink a pint just before bed every day.

Explain how you do not get sick from the toxic chemicals inside the melted plastic if you are consuming it that much.

If it was toxic than people would be dropping dead all the time!
sara_ann_dee

Con

No because people do not let plastic out in the sun melt into their drinking water - they are not stupid. And those who do (I can't imagine anyone who does this) probably don't consume it daily - either way, it is not healthy.

My opponent forfeited this round and failed to make a counterargument for my argument.

Reasons for voting decision: PRO's drinking liquid plastic and his continued health after doing so indicates a positive environmental impact which CON never addressed. PRO wins. CON never rebutted PRO's PhD claim, too.
