Soda CAN Cause CANCER!?
So as most people know, Soda, such as Pepsi, Coke, ect. are not all that good for you. They contain something called "High-Fructose Corn Syrup" which can, and does cause diabetes among other problems for our bodies. Despite what them BS commercials say, YOUR body CAN tell the difference. It can't digest man made sugar so it is stored in the body, WHICH IS WHY IT MAKES YOU FAT!
Yet, corn syrup isn't the culprit here, its a synthetic color that is used in MOST soda's. It's called "Caramel-Color". Most people think, "Hey, caramel has health benefits!" WELL THIS ONE DON'T! Caramel-color is made by mixing ammonia and sugar. It's base is so toxic it WILL destroy you immune system and yes, CAUSE CANCER. It is linked to lung, liver and thyroid cancers. EVEN LEUKEMIA!
The process also produces 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole. These are what cause the cancer. The toxic level is 16 micrograms and guess what? One 20oz bottle has 400 micrograms of this junk!
The Science for Public Interest has filed a petition to ban this crap from soda yet the FDA only said they will think about it.
The FDA, to me, stands for "Federal DEATH Association". They do not care about you, they just want the money in your wallet.
So next time your at the store, think twice about buying soda. I personally stopped drinking it a few months ago and don't plan to ever drink it again. Keep your kids away from the junk. Your better off drinking Kool-Aid at this point.
