For those hooked on colas and caramel colored soft drinks Consumer Reports says the concoctions with 4-methylimidazole will grow a tumor in your gut the size of a goiter.
Which begs the first question; how come the FDA or the CDC doesn't figure this stuff out first?
Then the second question; will an obese nation hooked on sugary drinks take the hint? Nah - remember, everyone gets 'free' meds under Obamacare so let party like it's 1994 baby.
"...(4-methylimidazole) definitely causes cancer in animal studies. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has also classified 4-MEI as a possible human carcinogen,” Dr. Urvashi Rangan noted.
Sugary drinks are already a ticket to diabetes and obesity, but isn't it extra special that cancer can now be counted as a good reason to give up the crap? Pepsi has more of it than Coke, and Malta Goya a Mexican soda has 300 micrograms of the toxin ready to take up residence in your liver.
Today it's a cold cool Pepsi on a hot summer's day...tomorrow it's a hot-shot of hair killing chemo in a cold intensive care ward.
