Did Pepsi Admit Their Soda Contains a Cancer-Causing Chemical?

Wow. I don’t drink Pepsi, but it’s not that I haven’t tried it at all. It came out that the cancer-causing chemical was around for years.

Let’s see the whole story.

Back in 2013, the Central for Environmental Health made a clear statement releasing the results of their 4-Mel concentration tests.

Even though all soft drinks were included in these trials, Pepsi came out as the company that tried to hide the truth about their soda.

Their response was: Denial.

Did Pepsi Admit Their Soda Contains a Cancer-Causing Chemical?

And of course, you can’t wait for something else to happen. It’s about a brand that was building their name for decades. They can’t go out and say that they have been offering their customers a cancer-causing chemical.

So, not only that they deny the reports, they went a step further saying the 4-Mel is not a dangerous chemical. This clearly sounds like admitting the harm.

But, let’s wait and see what happens next.

The California state laws proceeded into telling them to warn the customers about this cancer-causing chemical. Under these circumstances, Pepsi got instructions to put a cancer-causing warning label on all of their soda products.

That didn’t happen.

Consumers are not allowed to consume more than 29 micrograms of 4-MeI per day.

However, the results show how Pepsi One contain more than 29 micrograms of 4-Mel per serving.


Okay, but where is the confirmation that Pepsi admitted this?

In more than three years later, Pepsi reached a settlement in a class-action suit to keep the level of 4-Mel under 100 parts per billion of its US products. And that’s not everything.

Pepsi will be exposed to strict tests for the presence of this cancer-causing chemical under specific guidelines.

What’s 4-MeI (4-Methylimidazole)?

Now you know and you need to spread the word!
