    Coke, Pepsi Make Changes To Avoid Cancer Warning.....



    Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. are changing the way they make the caramel coloring used in their sodas as a result of a California law that mandates drinks containing a certain level of carcinogens come with a cancer warning label.

    Coca-Cola and PepsiCo account for almost 90 percent of the soda market, according to industry tracker Beverage Digest. A representative for Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. said all its caramel coloring now meet the new California standard.

    The American Beverage Association, which represents the broader industry, said its member companies will continue to use caramel coloring in certain products but that adjustments were made to meet California's new standard.

    The American Beverage Association also noted that California added the coloring to its list of carcinogens with no studies showing that it causes cancer in humans. It noted that the listing was based on a single study in lab mice and rats.....snip~

    Cancer is the least of your concerns if you are sucking down a lot of soda.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    I agree I use to drink a lot of soda. Then I got a job working in Construction. After a few days of 90 degree weather. That was the end of Soda. Even the UN-Cola. I think I had a Coke about a year and a half ago, and didnt finish it.

    I went to vitamin Waters and or Juices.

    Soda is no good for you on a regular basis. I wouldn't worry much about cancer from soda but there's a lot of sugar and crap that bad for your waistline and your teeth.

    Cancer from soda wouldn't surprise me - especially can linings. The thing is, a lot of what we eat and drink causes cancer - anything grilled like meat or vegetables, for example. Cancer, as much as it sucks, is a part of life I don't think we'll get rid of any time soon.

    That's the thing. A lot of things can potentially give you cancer. Live and be happy. Drinking soda isn't like smoking in terms of cancer.

    I poured concrete for 10 years, we drank a case of beer every day, Each. I put a beer holder on the trowel machine and would have the laborer's bring me a beer while finishing. Now I drink straight whiskey, never drink soda and not much water. My old buddy says "Water, that's what you wash your feet in". LOL

    I would not recommend a case of beer per day to anyone but beer is probably better for you than soda if you are drinking in moderation.

    Not much moderation there. Hmm. Which would put you in a grave fastest? I hate to say it but I think a case of beer > a case of soda > a case of diet soda / day. Maybe that's just me being a sheeple.

    A case of beer would produce a lot harmful crap into your body from breaking all that alcohol down. I'd say a case of soda would be better but not "good". A few beers a day, however, is better than a few sodas a day, IMO.
