Pepsi Co and Coca-Cola are bowing to social pressure and are removing the controversial additive “Brominated Vegetable Oil” from all of its drinks, including Powerade, Mountain Dews, and Fanta. Although the two soda manufacturers claim the ingredient is safe, critics of the companies insist that the substance is not fit for human consumption, because it “has been patented as a fire retardant and isnt approved for use in Japan and in the European Union.” I think Ill stick to green tea.
