No effects: Benzoic acid (benzoate) is a chemical intermediate. It is used as a preservative when it attaches to other molecules. By itself it does not have any known harmful effects: http://www.epa.gov/iris/subst/0355.htm#oralrfd ...Read more

Could sodium benzoate be taken out of your body?

Your body removes it: Sodium Benzoate is primarily used as a food preservative. It is metabolized by the liver and then the breakdown products are excreted in the urine. The majority (97%) of ingested sodium benzoate is excreted within 4 hours of ingestion. No other means of removing this drug are known. http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/sis/search/a?dbs+hsdb:@term+@DOCNO+696 ...Read more

Can sodium benzoate give you cancer?

I don't believe it: Internet scare sites peddling "natural food" are allowed by law to make claims that any scientist will recognize as misleading. There's no shortage of benzoic acid in many fruits (famously cranberries) and it's chemically interchangeable with sodium benzoate varying only with ph. This alone should tell you that the danger is hyped -- if they believed their stuff, they'd attack cranberries. ...Read more

Please help! what happens when sodium benzoate is combined with vitamin C in the body?

Nothing: There was a hoopla a while back about the mix of sodium benzoate (a preservative, chemically interchangeable to the natural benzoic acid that makes cranberries so tasty) and Ascorbic Acid (added to make fake orange drink healthy, i guess) forming benzene if left to sit in the hot sun. The amount was tiny and i wouldn't worry about it in your body. This stuff is silly. Don't worry. ...Read more

Could benzyl benzoate is for acne treatment ?

Better choices: This is great for scabies, but you may be confusing it with benzoyl peroxide, your best over-the-counter option for acne. It's not fun, but it's a good start. ...Read more

Scabies: Permethrin 5 percent (elimite) is a treatment option your doctor may recommend. This cream contains chemicals that kill scabies mites and their eggs, you typically apply it twice with a week or so between each application. Permethrin is generally considered safe for children and adults of all ages, including women who are pregnant or nursing. ...Read more

CariFree ct x 4: I am referring your question to some dental colleagues. I don't mean to be insulting but did you rinse for 1 minute & then spit out? Unfortunately, the company doesn't seem to provide full lists of potential side effects on the sites i checked. 1 site indicated: "changes in taste sensation, burning sensation, " i also tried looking this up on medication interaction checkers (ativan, bupropion &. ...Read more
