Does your Beverage have Carcinogens?

Give a thought before you buy beverages and gulp it down your throat. It is a known fact that beverages are bad for health. But did you know it is harmful and much more than you ever imagined it to be. A recent report said – ‘Pepsi products still have carcinogens.’  Many people were stunned by this report. Can this happen to a product of a multi-national company?

BEVERAGES2Watchdog group The Center for Environmental Health found via testing that while Coke products no longer test positive for the chemical, Pepsi products still do. The environmental group recently said that the caramel colouring used in Pepsi still contains a worrisome level of a carcinogen, even after the drink maker said it would change its formula. In March, PepsiCo Inc and Coca Cola Co both said they would adjust their formulas nationally after California passed a law mandating drinks containing a certain level of carcinogens come with cancer warning label. The changes were made for drinks sold in California. The chemical is 4-methylimidazole, or also known as 4-Mel.

That process is complete in California and will be finished in February 2014 in the rest of the country. Pepsi said it will also be taken out globally, but did not indicate a timeline. What happens till then as consumers merrily gulp down the beverage? Do the big international brands bother about the consumers around the world?
