Coke & Pepsi - Removing Cancer From Recipes

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



Coca-Cola & Pepsi alter recipe to avoid cancer warniong label – this from BBC not CNN!!!!!


The new recipe for caramel colouring in the drinks has less 4-methylimidazole – a chemical which California has added to its list of carcinogens.

The chemical has been linked to cancer in mice and rats, according to one study, but there is no evidence that it poses a health risk to humans, said the American Beverage Association, which represents the wider industry.

      BBC reports this overnight — hmmm, let’s see if this hits the “news” in the USA. Bet not!
      MOST VALID is the fact that the ONLY reason that Coke & Pepsi are making the changes in their recipes is to avoid a CANCER WARNING on their labels in California. Shame on you.

      Actually I believe this was an AP article posted Mar 9, 2012 1:47 AM [look at the bootom of the BBC page] It was picked up in UK, INDIA, East Africa – only ONE USA media so far. This will be interesting to see who actually covers this story.
