"These chemicals have the ability to cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria to the point that they totally inactivate it-they knock it out altogether," Peter Piper, a professor of molecular biology and biotechnology at the University of Sheffield in the U.K., told a British newspaper in 1999. The preservative has also been linked to hives, asthma, and other allergic conditions, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

What it does, according to Professor Peter Piper, an expert in aging at Sheffield University in the UK, is switch off vital parts of DNA. Not only that, but when sodium benzoate is mixed with vitamin C, it makes benzene, a known carcinogen (cancer-causer).
Professor Piper found that these chemicals can cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria, which, when damaged, causes the cell to mutate. "And there is a whole array of diseases that are now being tied to damage to this DNA - Parkinson's and quite a lot of neuro-degenerative diseases. But above all the whole process of aging," said Professor Piper.

Peter Piper, a molecular biology expert at Sheffield University studied the preservative and found it could damage an important part of DNA called mitochondria.
'These chemicals have the ability to cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria to the point that they totally inactivate it, they knock it out altogether,' said Piper.
'The mitochondria consumes the oxygen to give you energy and if you damage it then the cell starts to malfunction very seriously,' he said.
'And there is a whole array of diseases now being tied to damage to this part of DNA. Parkinson's and quite a lot of neuro-degenerative diseases, but above all the whole process of ageing can be caused by the damage,' added Piper.

Piper claimed that tests on sodium benzoate carried out by the European Union and the US Food and Drug Administration were too old to be reliable, the online edition of the Daily Mail reported Sunday.
'By the criteria of modern safety testing, the safety tests were inadequate,' he said.
'Like all things, safety testing moves forward and you can conduct a much more rigorous safety test than you could 50 years ago. My concern is for children who are drinking large amounts,' said Piper.

'Professor Piper has studied this for some years so we should be taking his concerns seriously.
