More ridiculous, sensationalized krap if you ask me. Lava, if you see this, I am mad bro!
Polyethylene Glycol is a 'chemical cousin' to Ethylene Glycol or anti-freeze but it's used in toothpaste, skin creams, etc
Yeah, i read that too, and rolled my eyes. Once you change a chemical structure, you change the way it interacts in the system.
The telling quote was actually from the scientist who said:
"Its stimulant, addictive and other adverse effects in humans are entirely unknown. Regulatory agencies should act expeditiously to warn consumers and remove N,α-DEPEA from all dietary supplements."

Let's also ban kids eating dirt because human trials and studies have not been done on dirt to determine the effect it has on humans......ugh.
