I'm not impressed. In fact, I'm downright angry. I've just seen the packaging of children's Dymadon and Dimetapp, and they contain Saccharin. I'm assuming that Baby Panadol has it too, as they advertise not containing sugar (but have flavour), but can't find it on the bottle. I'd rather DS have sugar - big time!!
The Chemical Maze (fantastic book on food additives) reports the following potential health effects for Saccharin: headache, cancer, urticaria (skin condition like hives), shrunken testicles, lowered testosterone levels, and mutagen (causing mutation of genetic cells).
Well, those bottles are no longer welcome in my house . Might keep some baby panadol just in case for rare occasions, but otherwise I'm off to check the Brauers range tomorrow.
