Preservatives BHT, BHA, and TBHQ

Studies show that BHT has a negative effect on Ca²⁺ATPase in the brain, skeletal muscles, testes, and mast cells; BHA has a negative effect on Ca²⁺ATPase in the brain and skeletal muscle; and TBHQ related compounds have a negative effect on Ca²⁺ATPase in the brain, arteries, uterus, motor neurons, platelets, testis, and mast cells.
