Drank Water in a Melted Plastic Bottle
Hello Doctor, About 14 hours ago, I filled half of my plastic water bottle with extremely hot water after which the bottom of my bottle melted and shrinked. Then I mixed cold water and I drank 4 sips immediately but realised the risk later. Please let me know if it is dangerous and how should I treat myself. I'm extremely worried. Thanks

Nothing to worry. Chronic exposure is carcinogenic. Avoid using plastic in future especially cooking and reheating.
