The dangerous chemical known as 4-methylimidazole can form in trace amounts when caramel coloring in cola is cooked. This chemical has been found to cause cancer in rats. Coke has made huge strides to eliminate the carcinogenic chemical from its cola

4-MEI in caramel color ), is also found in beer, roasted meats, grilled meats, coffee any food that has brown coloring. Your signature has been recorded.

Years ago a red dye was found to be a carcinogen and was forcibly removed from the market, shouldn't 4 MEI come under the same scrutiny and legal restrictions?

The "caramel coloring" used to color all the top cola brands isn't natural caramel coloring at all. Instead, it's made by reacting sugars with ammonia and sulfites at high temperatures. This reaction results in the formation of 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole, both of which are chemicals documented by the U.S. government to cause cancer in mammals.

No one needs Pepsi or Coke, Ben. No one needs colors added to food, it supposed to make things more appetizing and create a desire to buy and eat the product. Maybe the fair counter balance to these products is to have a picture of a cancer patient on each product.

Signed. I wonder if the company thinks they take that out of its drink that it won't taste the same and customers won't buy it as much. That might be why they are not taking faster action.
