The WUSA reports that the Center for Science in the Public Interest is claiming a possible link between Coke and Pepsi and cancer.
Citing studies that link several types of cancer to a chemical in caramel coloring, the head of the CSPI told 9 News that jeopardizing people’s health simply to give colas their familiar brown hue is just not acceptable.
First of all, don’t ever invite any “public interest” people to a party. #WetBlanket
But, this “news” is shocking how? I mean, car guys use Coca-Cola to remove rust from rims. Think that same sugary treat might be able to disrupt a little cell division in your body?
(Unrelated note: great line in a recent episode of HBO’s “Eastbound and Down.” Kenny Powers, the selfish but funny prick who has been comically stuck with his baby boy, watches the one-year old puke all over his buddy’s car. KP says, “I think his body is reacting to the Pepsi.” Classic.)
I have far greater concerns than cola and cancer, like reading some new report that Jack Daniels – my preferred pairing with Coke – has been linked to alcoholism.
That kind of news could make a man turn to the bottle. Know what I mean?
