The major health threat of ingestion occurs from the danger of aspiration (breathing) of liquid drops into the
lungs, particularly from vomiting. Aspiration may result in chemical pneumonia (fluid in the lungs), severe
lung damage, respiratory failure and even death. Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal disturbances, including
irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, and central nervous system (brain) effects similar to alcohol
intoxication. In severe cases, tremors, convulsions, loss of consciousness, coma, respiratory
