It depends on how much of the ingredient is ingested. A small amount will probably do nothing, but since it is a skin irritant, it may cause swelling and a rash. This may mean that what you swallow will cause the throat to swell up and inhibit breathing. It is also possible to have an allergic react…

A glow stick glows as the result of the chemical reaction between two liquids - the 'oxilate' typically trichloro-6-carbonpentoxyphenyl and phenylethynyl.The chemical reaction for this kind of heatless light happens when you mix multiple chemical compounds.

The glow stick in the cold water will not glow as bright as the glow stick in the hot water because when you cool the glow stick down, the chemical process will slow down. The glow stick in the hot water will glow brighter but for a shorter period of time.

The chemical in a glow stick is not poisonous unless ingested in large quantities.

The materials they contain, those causing the luminescence (glowing), are carcinogenic and highly toxic (they cause cancer and they kill stuff).You should never feed a cat, or any animal, a glowstick.

Yes, although not as brightly. The cooler temperature slows the rate of reaction in the stick. the most it will last is one week, but it only looks good for about 4 or 5 days, if you play with it for an hour each night.
