If a chemical requires the workers handling it to have access to a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), and If that sheet identifies health concerns, the chemical is not going into a Liberty Product
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 11, 2011
Allicin Garlic Supplement Research by Liberty Health Network, LLC. recently identified a long list of chemicals in Allicin Garlic products that warrant investigation. While the amounts of the chemicals listed are quite small, one has to question the long term effects of ingesting these chemicals not just in Allicin Garlic Supplements, but in other supplements. Concern is also about the effects of handling and ingesting a number of other nutritional supplements (with the same chemicals) over time.
"It's like eating a greasy hamburger at a fast food restaurant." Says Chief Operating Officer Russell Bly. "You are not going to grab your chest and die walking to the car from the first burger. But over time, it's the compounding effects that we are learning about. Just like Lead in Paint, and Asbestos in insulation, it took us years to figure out that we were poisoning ourselves one super-sized burger and order of fries at a time."
While it may take years to learn the long-term effects of certain chemicals, one thing is clear to Bly: "If a chemical requires the workers handling it to have access to a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), and If that sheet identifies health concerns, the chemical is not going into a Liberty Product."
Garlic from a National Brand was analyzed by Liberty Health. The National Brand Garlic was compared to Liberty's AlliSTAR supplement. Researchers were concerned about the chemicals, and the known health effects as listed on their respective MSDS Sheet. While the US Government feels these chemicals are acceptable within established limits, it's up to the consumer to make the best determination for them self.
Garlic was not all that was found in the National Brand. In fact, the list of added chemicals was shocking. To drive home their point, Liberty Health provides direct links to outside Material Safety Data Sheets on the chemicals listed.
"Garlic supplements actually cost more to manufacture without the added chemicals. But at Liberty, we feel our customers deserve better products. Purity is the main differentiating factor in our supplements such as our AlliStar Garlic Allicin. Here's the way we look at it. A municipal swimming pool has a water quality that the local governments deems safe to ingest. Now if given the choice of purchasing pure bottled water, or a getting a free glass of water dipped from that municipal pool on a hot weekend afternoon, which glass would most prefer?" Asks Bly.
To drive home the point, Mr. Bly provided a list of chemicals included in a popular store brand Garlic Supplement, as well as warnings from the associated Material Safety Data Sheets.Mr. Bly stress that "Again, just as the county or state health department says the pool water is safe, I still would rather drink from a new bottle of Spring Water!"
Chemicals in question:
CROSCARMELLOSE SODIUM Skin: May cause skin irritation. Eyes: May cause irritation or burning. Inhalation: May cause irritation to the respiratory tract.
METHACRYLIC ACID Corrosive. Contact with eyes, respiratory tract or skin will cause burns. Harmful by skin contact. Typical OEL 20 ppm. May act as a mutagen.
STEARIC ACID Acute Potential Health Effects:May cause skin irritation.Eyes: May cause eye irritation.Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. Symptoms may include coughing, sore throat, labored breathing, and chest pain.Ingestion: Ingestion of large oral doses may cause irritation to the gastrointestinal tract. Ingestion may also causeintestinal obstruction.
MAGNESIUM SILICATE Chronic Effects on Humans: Causes damage to the following organs: lungs. Other Toxic Effects on Humans: Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of ingestion, of inhalation.
TITANIUM DIOXIDE Mutagenetic Effects: Mutagenic for mammalian somatic cells. May cause damage to the following organs: lungs, upper respiratory tract. Other Toxic Effects on Humans: Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of ingestion, of inhalation. Special Remarks on Chronic Effects on Humans: Possible carcinogen (tumorgen) based on animal data. No human data found at this time and IARC so far has found inadequate evidence for carcinogenicity in humans. Special Remarks on other Toxic Effects on Humans: Acute Potential Health Effects: Skin: Skin exposure to titanium dioxide is virtually harmless. It is reported to be a mild irritant and may cause mechanical irritation (irritation from frictional action). It is believed not to be absorbed through intact skin. Eyes: Dust may cause mechanical irritation (irritation from frictional action), Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal (digestive) tract irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It is not absorbed following ingestion. No hazard is expected in normal industrial use. Inhalation: Nuisance dust. May be harmful if inhaled. Causes respiratory tract irritation. May affect respiration and blood. Chronic Potential Health Effects: Heavy occupational dust exposures may cause chronic rhinitis, chronic bronchitis, impaired pulmonary function, resemblance of silicosis without any fibrosis, functional change in trachea or bronchi, chronic pulmonary edema.
POLYPROPYLENE GLYCOL Acute Potential Health Effects: Skin: May cause mild skin irritation. Eyes: May cause slight irritation, but no corneal damage. Inhalation: Vapor may cause respiratory tract irritation. Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal tract irritation. Toxicity is expected to be low during normal industrial handling. May affect behavior.
SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE The substance may be toxic to skin. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated exposure to a highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an accumulation in one or many human organs.
TRIACETIN Hazardous in case of ingestion. Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant, permeator), of inhalation.
With seafood facing possible contamination from the Gulf oil spills, Food Products from major suppliers being recalled due to mysterious smells, toys with hazardous paint from overseas, and Nutritional Supplements packed with chemicals known to accumulate in the body or cause other health concerns, the question begs to be asked: How much can the human body handle in the form of potential poisons? Unfortunately, we may not know for another generation or two. But for now, conventional wisdom demands that consumers avoid as many potentially harmful chemicals as possible to ensure a long and healthy lifestyle.
