    Yeah, I've seen that in Norwegian news too. With referals to antifreeze, claims of toxicity and all that. No mention that the bottle contains 33% of a much more toxic substance.

    "the CDC has determined that toxic levels of the chemical are almost impossible to achieve through oral consumption."

    So, according to American regulators, PG is perfectly safe to ingest.

    It is perfectly safe to inhale in prescribed medicine and stage fog, among other things.

    But put it in an e-cig and all of a sudden OMG you're breathing antifreeze!!! 8-o

    Funny how that works... :rolleyes:

    Another indication of corrupt ignorance and monumental stupidity.

    The scientific truth has been known for almost 70 years:

    Just to clarify that it's ethylene glycol that is used in antifreeze and is a very different substance to propylene glycol.

    PG is typically used these days in place of EG, due to lower toxicity to most animals. :)

    The person who wrote the article might be embarrassed if they read this:

    Propylene Glycol (Inactive Ingredient) - Drugs.com

    It's considered safe to inject it as a drug carrier and the body treats it as a normal carbohydrate, it might cause someone to gain some weight.

    :D:vapor:
