In the synthesis of Aspirin, would you eat your own aspirin crystals? If not, provide three (3) reasons why not?

  1. 1. The primary reason (for me) is they don't meet FDA requirements.
    2. A second very good reason is that "we don't eat or drink the laboratory" because we don't know what was in the beaker/flask before we used it nor how clean it was before we used it.
    3. Along those line I expect you can think of a third.
