Denatonium Benzoate In Acetone
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
This is a simple chemical, termed a ketone, which the body makes when sugar is in excess. It also is an effective cleaning, and sterilizing agent but can dissolve some plastics and is highly flammable in concentrated form. It is also used to remove cosmetic fingernails and to dissolve "crazy glue' when it is applied ...Read more
Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?
Yes, however...: I strongly advise you take Vitamin C, ideally 1000 mg 2-3x/day, but you should try to find forms without sodium. I don't know what's available in Denmark, but in the US you can find ascorbic acid, or calcium or magnesium ascorbate without sodium. Lypo-spheric Vit. C is esp. well-absorbed,but has 120 mg of sodium, but a low sodium diet usually allows 2000mg/day. Vit. C is best with bioflavonoids. ...Read more
I just used carifree ctx4 treatment rinse and now i'm foaming at the mouth and nauseated. Is this normal? Mixed rinse a - basically sodium benzoate and xylitol; with b - sodium hydroxide and bleach.
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My friend is allergic to benzocaine, does that mean she will be allergic to benzophenone or benzoate acid?
No: It is the caine your friend is allergic to, an allergist can skin test her and suggest different anesthetics she can tolerate. ...Read more
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
See below: Very little. The drug is used in medicine to assist in lowering serum ammonia levels by activation of a nonurea cycle pathway; ammonia in the presence of benzoate will conjugate with glycine to form hippurate which is secreted by the kidney. As a preservative, there is little worry unless the individual is also on probenecid which can inhibit benzoate renal excretion. ...Read more
