Good news for Pepsi drinkers. But I wish people would get off soda altogether. NASTY stuff!

I don't use their products anyway. How about going 100% natural?

So, they're going to replace it with SAIB, an ingredient used in lacquers, printing inks, etc. Typical Pepsi!

None of the sodas are good for the human body, period end of story! Natural WATER, green tea, etc.... Sodas contribute to childhood obesity and early onset diabetes. Once in while why not, but a steady diet of these "poisons" is so not cool, smart or healthy. Even the diet sodas are bad for our system.

Why did it take so long, who originally thought this was safe/ok. I supposed the best thing is to be thankful a change is being made.

It's a step in the right direction.

In times gone by (sigh) when we still took our photographs on film or plates, Potassium bromate was an important ingredient of developers. As I said before, it's at least 50 years since I drank the last pepsi or coke or any other such artificial "drinks".
