Do glass bottles contain any harmful chemicals to humans

Great! Share this article  

Glass bottles have been used throughout history to hold food and beverages. In fact, glass has been used for over 2,500 years! So it’s no surprise that people are concerned about the safety of glass bottles and whether or not they contain any harmful chemicals.

The glass used in the food industry is known as borosilicate glass.

Rather than your standard glass, which shatters when exposed to sudden changes in temperature, borosilicate glass is a type of glass that is resistant to thermal shock, meaning it doesn't shatter when exposed to sudden changes in temperature. The most common type of borosilicate used for food bottles and other containers is tempered soda lime glass, which makes it easier for manufacturers to create lighter-weight products.

Borosilicate glass is considered one of the most chemically inert forms of glass and is thus perfect for making labware.

If you’ve ever worked in a lab, you may have come across borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is considered one of the most chemically inert forms of glass and is thus perfect for making labware.

Borosilicate glass is strong and durable, resistant to most chemicals, and has a high thermal expansion coefficient (meaning it can withstand temperatures up to 500°C or 932°F). It also has a low coefficient of linear expansion (meaning it will not expand as much as other types of glass when heated or cooled), which makes it an ideal insulator for nuclear reactors.

Borosilicate glass is composed of silicon dioxide, boron trioxide, aluminum oxide and sodium oxide (Na2O).

Borosilicate glass is a type of glass that has been used in food and beverage containers, laboratory glassware and eyeglasses. Borosilicate glass is composed of silicon dioxide (SiO2), boron trioxide (B2O3), aluminum oxide (AlO3) and sodium oxide (Na2O). The addition of the sodium oxide gives borosilicate a greater resistance to thermal shock than soda-lime glass by forming a protective layer on its surface upon exposure to sudden temperature changes.

Borosilicate glass has very low levels of leachables, especially when compared to plastic containers.

Borosilicate glass is a good choice for storing food and beverages because it has very low levels of leachables, especially when compared to plastic containers. The borosilicate glass used in the manufacture of these products is as strong as other types of glass and resistant to thermal shock. It also offers greater resistance to impact than regular soda bottles or jars, so it’s ideal for transporting your hot sauce safely!

This type of container is made with BPA-free plastic liners that are meant to make it easier to open and close the lid. If you want something that has more built-in safety features, then a screw-top jar would be better suited for your needs (especially if you have young children at home).

However, some people have claimed that borosilicate glass contains the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) which can cause adverse health effects if ingested.

BPA is a chemical used to make polycarbonate plastic, which is the stuff that most baby bottles are made of. BPA doesn't actually come from the bottle itself but from what's inside it—the water you put in your H2O container can leach into your bottle and be absorbed by its insides. It's also found in sports water bottles, as well as some baby bottles and sippy cups.

While there haven't been any recorded cases of humans being harmed by borosilicate glass products containing BPA, studies on animals have shown that exposure to high levels of BPA can result in hormonal changes and even cancerous growths on their reproductive organs! So if you want to stay safe from harmful chemicals like this one then avoid using plastic products with any kind of resin-based coating (like lacquer or varnish).

Glass can't hurt you

Glass is an inert substance. It does not react with other chemicals or materials, so it can't hurt you. Glass has been used for thousands of years without any toxic effects being reported, nor are there any known health risks associated with handling glass bottles today.

Glass is not a chemical leach (a bad thing). Glass doesn't have any harmful substances that might come out of it over time and poison you, like metal cans do; this is why most beer and soda companies prefer to use glass instead of aluminum cans—there's no chance that their product will give you cancer!

Glass isn't a chemical toxin, carcinogen or teratogen (a bad thing). Even if there were some kind of dangerous chemical inside the bottle itself (like those found in lipstick tubes), the amount released would be minuscule compared to what's already present in your body from breathing air or drinking water every day; furthermore since this supposed toxin isn't released into your body upon drinking from a glass container then there wouldn't be much reason for concern anyways because we don't need food containers to be safe enough for infants either!

We hope this article has helped you understand why glass is a safe material to use and what it is made of. We have covered some common myths about glass and have shown that they are not true at all.
