PepsiCo to take controversial ingredient out of Gatorade

Quote:
Responding to consumer concerns, PepsiCo today announced that it will remove brominated vegetable oil, an emulsifier, from citrus-flavored Gatorade.
But nothing else.

Think, McFly! Think!

Once I learned of BVO, I gave up Mtn. Dew :(. Fortunately, it made me rediscover Mello Yello, which I prefer (and thought had been discontinued).

After I discovered the best ingredient called water, I gave up on all soft drinks altogether.

After I discovered the evils of Oxygen (it's what ages you and breaks down your body), I gave up water and go for straight hydrogen.

Why stop at water?
Oh, and that girl looks slightly retarded. I am thus never going to drink Gatorade, because it makes one look retarded.

The phosphoric acid used in cola drinks is a rust converter, but that doesn't stop me drinking Coke. Excess consumption would probably cause me to lapse into a diabetic coma long before I got to a toxic dose of acid.

Water is >90% of most beverages. It's an awesome ingredient.

The Swiss woman, who was in her fifties, apparently got the idea after watching the documentary film 'In the Beginning, There Was Light' which features an Indian guru who claims to not have eaten anything in 70 years.

Wait... there are people who actually believe that bullshit?

wait, democrats think that spending a trillion more a year than they bring in is a good idea, and you're shocked that someone believed you can live off of sunlight alone for 70 years?

Wait, people experience their environment as absolutely real, when quantum mechanics clearly prove that they are relatively real, aka, "real enough".
