  1. This statement is incorrect: “As Class 1 preservatives are natural, there is no need to be cautious while using it.”

    Using the definition of ‘natural’ as ‘not man-made’, then it does not follow that natural substances are such that you need not worry while using them. A simple counter-example is salt, it is possible (without being cautious) to consume too much salt, enough to kill you in fact.

    There are other examples such as arsenic or hemlock. Something being natural does not mean it is automatically safe.

  2. great information….
