What are the adverse effects of potassium sorbate on my unborn baby?

What are the adverse effects of potassium sorbate on my unborn baby?

None: This is a food preservative, a simple molecule that's naturally found in berries.

I have concluded that it simply made up to scare people into buying overpriced "natural foods". I'm sorry his happened. ...Read more
