PepsiCo, Coca Cola, and Dr. Pepper: Stop adding flame retardants to our drinks

PepsiCo has bowed to public pressure and removed brominated vegetable oil from Gatorade because of possible dangerous health effects. I drink Mountain Dew, and I was shocked to read that PepsiCo is keeping this ingredient in Mountain Dew. Coca Cola is keeping it in Powerade and Fresca, and Dr. Pepper is keeping it in Squirt and Snapple Sunkist Peach Soda. If it's potentially unhealthy and now removed from Gatorade, why should it be kept in these other popular drinks? Brominated vegetable oil is a patented flame retardant used in plastics.

      Why are these companies making two different products knowing that one is safe and healthier than other which is dangerous with long term side affects. Their focus should be on making safe and healthy foods for everyone throughout the world.

      I am horrified to learn of the harmful ingredients in almost everything in our grocery stores that the food industry is trying to pass along as "food". I am outraged that the whole country is being silently poisoned. It puts the average citizen on an inevitable path to a never ending list of pharmaceuticals.. but then again, Im sure they know what they are doing. A few powerful people are becoming even wealthier as American is only getting more obese and ill.

      I drink Mountain Dew daily (until now). Please fix this! It was the only soda I could drink because of its low carbonation content. I won't be drinking it again until this is fixed!

      Our health should be top priority, perhaps we could just shake before drinking.
