Toxic Compounds

Ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, ethylene oxide and more; they are all found in PEG 3350.This material safety data sheet lists many of the impurities found in pharmaceutical grade PEG 3350.

In 2018, researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital administered MiraLAX to their study participants, ethylene glycol levels increased within ALL the participants. 

Or how about when the FDA tested several lots of MiraLAX in 2008 and found ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol in every lot they tested?! Even more infuriating, the FDA took until 2015 to release their findings. Not to mention, per the article, all of the adverse events filed with the FDA up until 2015 were similar to ethylene glycol poisoning. Lastly, the World Health Organization has come out and said that ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol should never be found in medicines as they can be fatal even when taken in small amounts. ​
