High Health Hazard. Trisodium NTA is a skin, eye and lung irritant and can cause organ system toxicity.

Trisodium NTA, also known as nitrilotriacetic acid, is an alternative to Tetrasodium EDTA. NTA acts as a builder to improve the efficacy of detergents. NTA is derived from non renewable resources, and has been found to be a possible human carcinogen. Experiments have shown that when administered in the diet of mice and rats, Trisodium NTA induced cancerous tumors in the kidneys and urinary bladder. REFERENCES: (1.
