Crystal Pepsi ad 1993
It was an epic fail in Canada because it didn’t have caffeine. I won’t even pretend to understand why, but it’s illegal to caffeinate clear soft drinks in Canada.
Alarmist talk. Night mists were once believed to cause malaria, too.
There is about as much scientific support for the various causes of cancer as there once was for the Phlogiston theory. Skewed test runs and forced fitting of data to a preconceived notion of the outcome, with perfectly logical but flawed application of observed data means the next generation has to learn some basic facts of the Universe all over again. There is no such thing as “settled science”.
Some 50% of what young skulls full of mush are taught as absolute fact in their formative years turns out to be totally untrue within their own lifetimes. But they never tell you beforehand which 50% that might be.
it’s because the canucks put up with clowncar meddelsome gobern-MENTAL marooons .......be my guess....
Many chemicals test as carcinogenic when administered in extremely high doses over a prolonged period of time to laboratory animals. The doses given are often just below lethal doses. These studies do not equate to actual human exposure.
There are plenty of reasons to avoid soda (I hate the stuff), but being afraid of trace quantities of the caramel coloring isn’t one of them.
I don’t care. Nobody is going to take my Pepsoi Max away. Besides Consumer Reports sucks.
Did the Soda industry forget to send money to 0bama?
Will some folks forgo the supersize soda drink a small or medium soda?
It reminds me of a scare in the early 70s about a synthetic sweetener. It turned out that the amount given the rats was equivalent of a human drinking several cases a day.

Have some ALAR, anyone?
Yup. Look up the list of carcinogens found in onions and spinach, to cite a couple.
If you drink as little as a single railroad tankcar a day every day of your life for the next 186 years, there is a 1 in 10,000 chance of you developing benign nasal polyps!
With machines that can analyze down to parts per trillion, you can find anything you want in a sample of anything.
The amount given to rats in order to induce cancer far, far exceeds any potential intake of a person. Even water and oxygen can cause death when ingested in extreme amounts.
The caramel coloring was on their “list” back in the 60s and 70s. Just like nitrites in bacon, cholesterol in eggs, salt and HBP, blah blah, blah. The idiots are cyclic in their revival of old, long disproved crap.
Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow you will die...or the day after...or the year after...anyway live, don’t cower.
Best health move I ever made was giving up pop about four years ago.
...Just thinking out loud.

“mal aria” = Bad Air
mid 18th cent.: from Italian, from mal’aria, contracted form of mala aria bad air. The term originally denoted the unwholesome atmosphere caused by the exhalations of marshes, to which the disease was formerly attributed.
