are often used as preservatives in foods as well as in vitamins and  nutritional supplements.  They show up most often in liquid vitamins and mineral drinks, as well as in juice drinks such as Noni juice.  You can find these preservatives in nutritional supplements on your regular grocery shelf,  in “health” food stores and also in many drinks sold in multi-level marketing programs.

Harvard MD Said Sodium Benzoate “Harmful to Health” in 1920’s

Way back in the 1920’s, around the time when the Food & Drug Act was passed, Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, M.D. tried to get sodium benzoate outlawed.  He called it a “monstrosity” and thought it was harmful to health and should not be used in foods.  Dr. Wiley taught at Harvard and also worked for the US Department of Agriculture assisting Congress in answering questions about chemical preservatives in foods.  Sodium benzoate was, however, a boon to food manufacturers, since it greatly extended the shelf life of many processed foods, including vitamins and nutritional supplements, and that is why it can still be found in many products today.
