Pepsi admits its soda contains cancer-causing ingredients
[/url]


ISABELLA Z–When the Center for Environmental Health released test results showing that Pepsi intentionally covered up the presence of high levels of 4-Mel in its popular soft drinks in 2013, the company denied both the presence of this chemical in its beverages and the fact that it was dangerous. 4-Mel, which is short for 4-Methylimidazole, is a compound that is formed in the manufacturing of caramel coloring, and is a known carcinogen.



Since then, the drinks maker has fought against complying with California state requirements to place a cancer warning label on the beverages that contain the ingredient, which include not only Pepsi, but also Diet Pepsi and Pepsi One.


Now, a settlement in a class action lawsuit against Pepsi has gained preliminary approval from a federal judge in California. As part of the proposed settlement, Pepsi has agreed to ensure its caramel coloring’s 4-Mel levels do not exceed 100 parts per billion in products that are being shipped for sale within the U.S. They will also be required to test the soda using specific protocols.


The soft drink giant also agreed to these measures in a different lawsuit that was settled in a California state court last year. The new settlement, however, expands the reach of these measures from California to the entire country.

Pepsi failed to warn consumers that its drinks contain known carcinogens
The lawsuit accused Pepsi of failing to warn people that its beverages contain 4-Mel, which California has officially recognized as a cancer-causing chemical.

I presume this is what is deemed to have been safe according to the FDA. 
Not very reassuring. Wonder if it's known what the levels are now, and  
have been to date.

How many parts per billion is deemed "safe" of a known carcinogen?

I do the same sort of thing. Dry vitamin and mineral powered tasty package added to bottled water. There is no need for the other crap....except coffee. I drink coffee with real cream.  Heartflowers
As i was reading the article, it seemed this didn't affect the levels that could included outside the US though. 

Did anyone else pick up on that?

Squeeze half a lemon or orange into a glass of water, and d own the hatch isi my favorite.  Or something a chiropractor told me, dilute fruit juice by half.  That POM juice is good that way.  Liquid yet less calories.

I've got a bottle of some that's supposed to be good and organic.  I'd say what brand it is but I'd have to stand up and I'm so comfortable right now..lol.  Do you add apple cider vinegar to fruit juice, or water?
