I am sure that when people drink juice or sodas, they never expect to find chemicals or ingredients that could potentially kill them. You’d be surprised how many companies make errors that could cost you your health. Here are just 10 examples.
1. Tropicana Orange Juice
Coca Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. found a banned chemical (fungicide) inside Tropicana orange juice. The Food & Drug Administration tested the juice and found that the levels of fungicide are acceptable. However, there is one problem. Fungicide can dissolve testicles.
2. Wei Chun Co. Passion Fruit & Kumquat Juices:
This Taipei company was fined for selling tainted juice products to eateries and drinks shops. At least 700 restaurants, hotels and tea shops bought the products. The juices had clouding agents.
3. Diet Coke:
A UK documentary looked at the significant increase in people dying of brain cancer. They found that the artificial sweeteners in diet coke and other diet sodas was a cause. Aspertain is deadly and should be consumed with caution.
This health drink contains high amounts of oxidane. Oxidane is a chemical and solvent used in nuclear power plants. This chemical is present in almost all soft drinks. People should watch out.
Beer does have high levels of ethanol. This gas is actually recognized by UN as a weapon of mass destruction.
6. Apple Juice:
Watch out before drinking apple juice. Consumer Reports and the FDA in the US found that there were exceeding levels of arsenic in available apple juices. The reason why arsenic is present in apples is because of the soil the trees are grown in. The soil which contains arsenic contaminates the fruit which contaminates the juice.
In 1990, benzene caused this company to recall its product. The company still alleged that there was less benzene than in cigarettes. Angry consumers formed a lawsuit against the giant saying they knew their products were tainted and sold them anyways.
8. Bolthouse Farms Carrot Juice:
Organic seems marketable, especially for those wishing to go for healthy choices. Andy Vale of Toronto bought the drink and suffered from botulism which caused paralysis and breathing problems for him and his wife. The company issued a recall after 7 cases of poisoning occurred in Canada and the United States.
Botulism is a disease that is caused by a toxin produced by Clostridium botulinum (bacterium).
9. Coca Cola milk drinks.
Coca Cola milk drinks in China were found to contain methomyl and thiodicarb. These chemicals are used in pesticides. The milk drinks were Minute Maid Super Milky drinks. One boy died from poisoning while 2 others were affected.
10. Various Soft drinks
Many soft drinks and bottled waters contained a chemical called Dihydrogen Monoxide which is deadly. The chemical can cause death through suffocation. Oxygen will not be absorbed in the lungs as a result.
