How dangerous is for an adult to drink baby oil? Is baby oil the same as mineral oil for constipation?

In brief: Don't do it!

Uncertain--i can find no exact references in pubmed re: ingestion of baby oil.
Nevertheless, there are well characterized syndromes associated with aspiration of toxic oils with resulting pneumonitis, as well as in the 1990's an eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome associated with toxic-oil intake, diffuse fasciitis, & eosinophilia. Don't take a chance! still in doubt, call the poison control center.
