  •  Well, more accurately (0+ / 0-)

    It breaks down into methanol, which converts to formaldehyde in the body.  May be a hoax, though.  I can't find a legit source that discusses it.

    •  ok. thanks for the response. Let me know (0+ / 0-)

      if you find anything (not that I use it - I don't. DOn't buy anything that contains fake sweetners either), but I'm curious to know.

      the thing about body conversions is that your body tends to break down lots of things that in the short term mid step could be potentially hazardous and/or fatal.

      That's actually what happens with drugs that say 'do not take with alcohol' (well most of them) they actively interfere with the chemical break down of it in your body leaving it any either a keytone, an aldehyde or ester (I forget which).

      Hence I am not sure it's a problem per say but it's something to be away of if true.

    •  Does that make you a zombie? (0+ / 0-)

      If your body is full of formaldehyde, but your still walking around, aren't you classified as a zombie?
