Is MiraLAX The Next Vioxx?
Pasted from the article:
“Ethylene glycol is chemically broken down in the body into toxic compounds. It and its toxic byproducts first affect the central nervous system (CNS), then the heart, and finally the kidneys. Ingestion of sufficient amounts [as little as 30 ml — KM] can be fatal.” 
Technically, PEG is an osmotic laxative. Because of this property, it blocks the absorption of nutrients in the small intestine. Its extended use may result in severe malnutrition-related disorders, particularly in young children and older adults."
“As of March 2012, the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System showed 2257 reported adverse events related (in any way) to PEG products - up from 7 in 2001. Included in the adverse events reported are serious kidney, urinary, bowel, blood, skin, and neuropsychiatric symptoms - and at least 3 children's deaths."
Read the full article for full disclosure. The label clearly states “Use no more than 7 days”.
The approval letter submitted to the FDA states the usage is for Occasional Constipation, yet children everywhere, including one close to my heart, are the victims of nasty chemicals and greed. What happened to healing foods Mother Nature has to offer?
I dream of a world where we can all live in love and harmony - to the new world!
