Are there any known cases?
20 Sep 2011
Hi, sorry it's taken so long for you to get a response to your question... There have been cases that can confirm your suspicion, i have cut a small bit out of a webpage investigating this theory;
"The soft drinks industry has known for 15 years that the preservative sodium benzoate can produce benzene if mixed with ascorbic acid - more commonly known as Vitamin C.
And experts and consumer groups are asking why the two chemicals are still present in so many drinks.
Benzene has been linked to leukaemia and other cancers of the blood and is also found in pollutants such as car exhaust fumes".
The link i used is as follows; http://www.vqmanager.co.uk/cgi/radSVQ.cgi
It doesn't mean that someone WILL contract cancer if consuming these chemicals, but maybe it's good to be aware of this and limit any consumption of foods in this 'group'.
