as well as diarrhea, chest pain, headache and annoying tingling. In view of the alarming numbers of deaths
and sick people, alarms have been set off in several countries, which has forced governments
to require distributors of this product to implement the information on their harmful
effects on the respective labels, especially considering children, who do not usually see
