Instead of giving : You recipes to die by, i want to focus on why you might feel the need to drink hydrogen peroxide. Do you want to harm yourself or to die? With help your life can improve. If you are having thoughts of killing yourself now, please have a friend or relative drive you to the emergency room. If you need to call 911 for help do so.

Depends on concentra: With a significant ingestion of high concentration hydrogen peroxide, one might develop vomiting, abdominal bloating, pain or cramping, burning of mouth or throat, difficulty breathing, chest pain, body aches & rarely – seizure. Household -strength hydrogen peroxide is much less dangerous than industrial - strength exposures. Deaths have been reported with high -concentration hydrogen peroxide.
