    Explain the harmful effects of vinegar in food?

    Vinegar is used in preparing so many food recipes especially Chinese dishes such as chow mein etc. But tell me why this is harmful?

    Not a clue. I drink the stuff and always have. So did my Grandmother for some strange reason. I once bought a gallon can of it which was concentrated. You had to water it down for normal use, I think it must of been a catering product. I know it is very acidic, Place a dirty penny in it and it will come up like new.

    I never heard it was harmful. What have you been told?
    I remember an old Italian man I worked for who used to drink vinegar right from the bottle.He was 86 so whatever harm he was suffering it sure had a slow effect. :>)

    Vinegar's key ingredient acetic acid has its side effects, sometimes causing heartburn and bad breath. When used in larger quantity, too much acidity on the stomach can have negative effects such as kidney failure and severe internal burns as once reported from rupture of red blood cells when a woman who attempted suicide by drinking about 400 millilters of 25 percent acetic acid-- roughly the same amount you'd find in a quart of strong vinegar.

    Another report tells of a cider vinegar fan who developed hypokalemia (low potassium levels), hyperreniemia (a condition caused by overactive kidneys that can lead to high blood pressure and other problems), and osteoporosis.

    And vinegar pills have a list of adverse effects such as: irritability, nervousness, and papitations and less frequently anorexia, constipation, gastrointestinal irritation, headaches, "hypersecretory conditions," vertigo, and vomiting.

    Staying within small doses will maintain a healthy and safe digestive system.
