PowerAde, which is owned by CocaCola contains a chemical called BVO, which is present in flame retardants. Laboratory testing concluded that this chemical may have negative health reactions to our bodies.
Many of my friends drink PowerAde, it's a common beverage on the sidelines during sporting events, and I hope they can continue to drink it. However, they have decided to stop until BVO is removed. For your health, I encourage you to sign this petition and share it with your friends and loved ones. Together, we can make a difference. The Today Show had a teenager on who used Change.org to convince Gatorade to stop using BVO. I think Powerade can do it, too. http://todayhealth.today.com/_news/2013/01/30/16772554-teen-wins-battle-against-gatorade-bvo-ingredient
