So the caramel coloring is carcinogenic? Pepsi may already have a solution:

Pepsi responded to the Consumer Reports study on Thursday, saying the average amount of diet soda consumed by people is just 100 milliliters. For that reason the company believes that Pepsi One does not require cancer-risk warning labels.

These assholes don't even try, do they?

The Ames test shows that lots of chemicals are carcinogenic. But that includes a bunch of chemicals that are more prevalent in organic produce than conventional. Because the organic needs to produce more natural insecticides.

Pepsi won the business war. With Yum! foods and Frito-Lay it's a much bigger company.

Seriously. The metric system exists for a reason. That's "just 1 deciliter". WTF is up with this abstract math shiat they're trying to push on us. If it's a deciliter, call it that, not this random selection of radices.

Snopes states it is "false" to claim Pepsi products contain aborted baby cells, but it is "undetermined" whether Senomyx uses aborted cells in R&D, basically because Senonymx won't answer the question.
But Snopes goes into great detail, citing articles by cbs news and forbes to corroborate that Senomyx indeed does.

So... What I get from that is Senonymx uses a cell line derived from a fetus that was aborted  over 35 years ago in the Netherlands.

And people are upset about it.

That would not put me off my Pepsi if I actually liked Pepsi. Which I don't. So that's kind of moot. But still, come on...

Good lord, I think it's been about a decade now since I stopped drinking soda. I don't say that to be superior, trust me, just that I highly recommend quitting it. The day I realized Gatorade (for example) had around 1/4th the calories was the day I stopped... mind you in the long run, my later love of craft beer probably negated it, but I like to think at least that is a more enjoyable vice.

Nowadays, soda of any kind just tastes weird if not gross. Bleh...

"4-Methylimidazole may be formed in the browning of certain foods through the Maillard reaction between carbohydrates and amino-containing compounds. In particular, it is found in roasted foods, grilled meats, coffee and in types of caramel coloring produced with ammonia-based processes.[1][2] It may arise also by fermentation."

They are saying "just one deciliter" or "just100mL" because that's only about one quarter of a standard US soda can.

That's not abstract math, you just don't have a familiar sense of how much that is.

Would you have preferred that the article had said "just 3oz" instead?

/metric users in the US only hear of deciliters if they work in healthcare, and frankly only for u dictating expressions of concentration. If it's a volume we use cc or ml.

12oz cans, biatches.

Gatorade still has quite a bit of sugar in it.  G2 isn't nearly as bad though.  That's the only kind of Gatorade I would drink.

Denmark. And cl is centi litres (100ths of a liter). I think it's only used for canned/bottled beverages here, even though 0,33 l is quite often printed on the cans instead.
Come to think of it, cl isn't being used anymore.... I have gotten old, apparently.

Gatorade is fine after a sweaty, gut-busting workout, but it will absolutely DESTROY your teeth and gums. Don't drink it casually.
