Comment:
My review is based on oral consumption. Calcium Disodium EDTA was added to a new formulation of dairy free spread I use due to lactose intolerance. It caused me to break out in hives all over my face, neck, and back. Since my diet is restricted due to lactose intolerance and IBS, it was easy to narrow down the changes in my nutrition to the addition of EDTA to the new formula of non-dairy spread. ...

Comment:
I took EDTA orally twice. It was a terrible experience. The first time I took 500 mg and then a later time I believe I tried 2000 mg. Whether this was safe or not, I'm not so sure. Both times, at the low and high dose, I felt terrible. After reading extensively about EDTA I found that it is not an as effective chelating, side effect-free agent like DMSA or ALA or even n-acetylcysteine. It can ... Show Full Comment
