Howdy--<br><br>
I've looked throughout the boards to the best of my abilities, and while lots of people say they won't use propylene glycol and talk about where it's from, no one says WHY they won't use it. If someone could enlighten me, I would really appreciate it....thanks!

I can't speak for others, but <a href="http://www.scorecard.org/chemical-profiles/summary.tcl?edf_substance_id=57-55-6" target="_blank">this</a> explains much better than I can why I avoid PG as much as possible. I just really don't want that in my body if I can help it.<br><br><br><br>
There's also good reading to be found <a href="http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/tfacts96.html" target="_blank">here</a>, if you're interested in the US government's view on PG (but read the whole page, not just the first 2 sections). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lipsrsealed2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sealed:">

I have read that propylene glycol is anti-freeze and I don't want that in my body.

There had been a big scandal rocking Austria and Germany as gycol (and I don't remember if it had been propylene glycol) had been added illegally to white wines to enhance their taste and sell also to sell them more expensively. I didn't follow it closely as I hardly drink alcoholic beverages at all and especially not white wines.
