My friend, Sarah Kavanagh, recently started a petition on change.org asking Gatorade to remove BVO, a chemical linked with flame retardant, from their beverages. To make a long story short, it got over 200,00 signatures and it won! Gatorade took BVO out of their sport drinks for good! It's really awesome knowing that great companies are paying attention to consumer concerns!
This has inspired me to start my own petition against one of my favorite drinks, Fanta. Me and my friends drink this all the time! Diet Orange Fanta is even sold at my school! Brominated Vegetable Oil, or BVO, has been linked to impaired neurological development, reduced fertility, and early on set puberty! Gross! No one wants to drink something that can have that kind of effect.
Please sign my petition, letting Fanta know that YOU care about what you are consuming!
