PepsiCo and Coca-Cola have been forced to drop a controversial chemical from all their drinks, thanks to a petition by a Mississippi teen and an overall worldwide rise in people's awareness of what goes into their food.

you are not hurting someone by telling these companies they can do better

Noted. Thanks for posting the good news, Ray. While I don't often drink the stuff, every once in awhile I'll have one....the less chemicals, the better.

There ought to be a class action lawsuit against Coke, Pepsi and all bottlers of pop. It is not fit for human consumption (or 4 legged animals either). It is using way too many resources; hard on the environment.
Make lemonade or drink plain water. (Save money).

noted. I wonder why people drink that stuff. I know people who are well aware of the issues and still can't seem to stop, Very weird.

It's scary knowing things that are in products that people drink or eat. It's good to see that petitions and people striving for change can make it happen. :)

I know several people who refuse to sign petitions because they 'never work'. I'm sending this to one of them!

I agree with all who do not drink coke or pepsi products...this includes their bottled water and so called health drinks. The only way we can truly send a message is to stop throwing money at them and being the ultimate (ignorant) consumers.
Make your own solar infused teas with the herbs and plants from your garden. Be creative and self sustaining. DO NOT SUPPORT THESE COMPANIES....THEY ARE KILLING YOU. ;-)
