Like most chemicals that have toxic properties, the possible dangers of benzoic acid depend on its concentration when it\'s mixed with other substances. At the low concentrations found in plants and foods benzoic acid and benzoates aren\'t dangerous for most people. Once they\'re eaten they\'re absorbed through the lining of the digestive tract and are converted into hippuric acid, which is excreted in the urine.
There are at least two ways in which benzoates can be harmful to people, however. They can cause allergic reactions in sensitive people, resulting in symptoms such as hives and asthma. Sodium benzoate may also play a role in increasing hyperactivity in children. In addition, when benzoates react with vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in the presence of heat and light, benzene forms. This reaction may happen in soft drinks. Benzene is a carcinogen (a substance that causes cancer).
In the United States the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is aware of the benzene problem in soft drinks. Between 2005 and 2007 the FDA discovered that some soft drinks contained benzene above the allowable level, but since this discovery many manufacturers have reformulated their products to reduce the amount of benzene.
According to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) that is created for chemicals, benzoic acid can irritate the eyes, skin, lungs and digestive tract, and it can be absorbed through the skin.
