Ingesting 35% Hydrogen Peroxide could be Fatal

The Food and Drug Administration also said that intravenous injections of such products would result in blood vessel inflammation, bubbles in blood vessels and potentially life-threatening allergic reactions.

The FDA has warned two Texas-based firms, DFWX and Frad 35 Inc., as they are illegally selling 35 % hydrogen peroxide products to treat AIDS, cancer, emphysema and other serious diseases.
