    I was quite disappointed by that pesticide scandal but it wasn't enough as looking forward to these so called interesting facts.
    I stopped consuming coke after that pesticide scandal but I think people hardly get affected by these things and continues with their favorite drink.

    Lol, I dont know how people believe in all the fiasco rumors that we flare up!

    If coke-pepsi weas really that contaminated then the parent companies must have banned them. They cant risk such a scandal! Not at all. However in india there were a few manfactures who used unfiltered or bad water (I am assuming this) and then people came to know about this.

    Pepsi has been arround for decades!!! Anyway, about the bone disolving thing. The amount of bone that disolves in a week of cunsuption gets regenerated in 3 minutes! And bytheway, we have much stronger acids in our stomach that it can even corrode glass and iron!! The exces phosphores is excreeted, if intake is abnormaly increased, then well, R.I.P 😁
