Coke customers (literally) drinking from the fire hose
With my clumsy cooking skills, things in my kitchen can turn from "Peking duck" to "duck and cover" in a hurry. I've kept a fire extinguisher next to my refrigerator for years -- and I'm proud to say I've never confused the two.
And if that just makes good sense to you... if you've never had the hankering to wrap your lips around your fire extinguisher hose and fill your belly with flame retardant... I have one simple question for you.
Got any Coca-Cola products in the house?
Those sugary soda-pop slingers have been coating your insides in dangerous flame retardant for years. Now they say they're ready to stop -- but that's only half the story.
Coca-Cola has just announced that it plans to pull brominated vegetable oil from its Powerade, Fanta and Fresca products. BVO keeps ingredients in citrus beverages from separating -- but that's the least of its talents. It's a patented flame retardant that's been linked to everything from headaches to memory loss, and it's been banned for years in Europe and Japan.
Coca-Cola is only pulling BVO now because of pressure from an online petition -- but you'd better believe they're not done poisoning us. In fact, one of Coke's top-selling diet sodas is sweetened with rat poison! Don't believe me? Check out all the details here.
Whether it's through their sickening sugars or dangerous additives, Coke has turned poisoning us into a billion-dollar business -- and they're not about to stop.
If you need a pick me up, give a strong pot of coffee a try. A little more coffee won't just cut your disease risk -- it'll keep those crooks at Coke from putting out that fire in your belly for good.
