    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Very comprehensive database with products' labels: ingredients, warnings, recalls, & much more. Searchable (i.e.: "propylene glycol") will return a staggering list of associated products.

    "The Household Products Database of the National Library of Medicine is based on the Consumer Product Information Database ©2001-2013 by DeLima Associates. All rights reserved.

    This database links over 12,000 consumer brands to health effects from Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) provided by manufacturers and allows scientists and consumers to research products based on chemical ingredients. The database is designed to help answer the following typical questions:
    • What are the chemical ingredients and their percentage in specific brands?
    • Which products contain specific chemical ingredients?
    • Who manufactures a specific brand? How do I contact this manufacturer?
    • What are the acute and chronic effects of chemical ingredients in a specific brand?
    • What other information is available about chemicals in the toxicology-related databases of the National Library of Medicine"
