Stop putting Propylene Glycol our everything!

Petroleum-based substances are not meant to be in high quantities in the human body, they are not meant to be there at all. There are a number of petroleum-based substances, including Propylene Glycol used for too many products and not labelled effectively with hazard warnings, injected into people forcefully (under Mental Health Acts) and allowed in public spaces, making PG difficult to avoid.

This use of a hazardous substance in our everything needs to stop.

PG is used to preserve, sterilise and as a humectant amongst of other uses (include Hospital Air-conditioners). The sheer quantity of use means that people are getting this chemical in their body in hazardous quantities.

Many people are suffering cumulative sensitivity to these preservatives in food, secondhand-deodorants/ perfumes, as well as medicines.

Theories that PG is quickly passed out of the body and the GRAS status, can be refuted by those people most harmed by this chemical. I refer to a public page on social-media Propylene Glycol Allergy.

PG is also proven to be very hazardous to asthmatics as well, which makes ventilators problematic, due the high intake of PG elsewhere.

There is no doubt that the diagnosis of diabetes, cancer, obesity and ‘mental illness’ has increased hugely since the 1940s when this substance was put into our food, air and medicines in a big way. It is also possible that the main allergen in tobacco smoke, is not the tobacco itself, but PG.

Our food, must stop being contaminated by PG on this huge scale. All products must be labelled and restaurants and catering businesses stopped from using this substance. At the moment, it is almost impossible to find catered food that doesn’t have PG contamination in their food, not often directly, but via manufacturers.

Our workspaces, need to be fume-free.

Workplaces have become a huge hazard, not because the actual workplaces uses hazardous substances, but because the workers there use deodorant and perfumes that they have no idea are harming their health and causing grievous suffering to colleagues.

There needs to be a total ban on Propylene Glycol and other petroleum-based substances being used in skin creams, deodorants, perfumes, medicines and food (human food & animal feed).

This is a health issue, a workplace issue, and an issue that effects all of humanity.
