  Watchdog group finds high levels of carcinogen in Pepsi drinks    (I had to laugh when Brad Pitt stopped for a Pepsi in the middle of   being pursued by zombies during WWZ lol. N)    Lorraine Mirabella    11:38 a.m. EDT, July 3, 2013    A health watchdog group is releasing a study today that found high   levels of a cancer-causing chemical in Pepsi drinks in 10 states,   including Maryland.    The Center for Environmental Health commissioned Eurofins Analytical   laboratory in Louisiana to analyze Coke   <>   and Pepsi products that were purchased from 10 states.    The group said Coca-Cola   <>   and PepsiCo   <>   had pledged to change their products' caramel coloring as a result of a   California law that requires labeling of products with cancer-causing   ingredients. But CEH found that the Pepsi bought in Maryland and nine   other states, not including California, still contains high levels of   the chemical, 4-methylimidazole.    The testing showed that Coke products have been reformulated. Earlier   tests showed both Coke and Pepsi products have been reformulated in   California.    A spokeswoman for PepsiCo released a statement in response to the CEH   findings that said the beverage maker's caramel coloring suppliers are   modifying their process to reduce the 4-MEI in the caramel.    "The work has been done in California; the rest of the U.S. will be   completed by February 2014," the company's statement said. "PepsiCo   suppliers are also undertaking this effort globally. There will be no   change to our product formula or to the great Pepsi taste consumers know   and love."    The statement also said: "The safety of our products is PepsiCo's top   priority and we abide by the regulatory guidelines everywhere we do   business. The FDA   <>   and other regulatory agencies around the world, including the European   Food Safety Authority and Health Canada, consider our caramel coloring   safe for use in foods and beverages."    CEH applauded Coca-Cola's action but called Pepsi's delay "inexplicable."    *UPDATE: *After PepsiCo issued its response, a spokesman for CEH said   the group will test Pepsi products again in the spring.    In the recent test, CEH asked 10 supporters from across the country to   send Coke and Pepsi products bought in their area, and the organization   sent them to the lab. Beverages included Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Coca-Cola,   Diet Coke and other products. The tests found little or no 4-Mel   chemical in nine out of 10 Coke products. Outside of California, the   Pepsi drinks contained levels of the chemical that ranged from four to   more than eight times higher than allowed in Californa, the group said.    Nearly half of Americans drink soda every day, according to a 2012   Gallup poll, with the average person drinking more than two glasses of   soda a day.    / <>/,0,480885.story      «¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»§«¤»¥«¤»    § Health_and_Healing - PULSE ON 21st CENTURY ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE & WORLD NEWS    Subscribe send email to:     Alternative Health and Old Time Cures:     Sacred Geometry Health Pendants / LIVING CALCIUM GREEN BENTONITE CLAY, SO PURE IT IS FOOD GRADE FOR INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL USE.
