This was posted on the wall in my office, so I want to pass this along to all of you of whom I care the world about. I honestly don't know how harmful this truly is, but just to be safe:

On February 24 and February 27, 2006, Environmental Working Group purchased the following drinks at four major retail outlets in Washington, D.C. They all contained asorbic acid and either sodium benzonate or potassium benzonate--the ingredients that the FDA and the beverage industry have said can mix together to form benzene, a known human carcinogen. The actual levels of benzene formed in these products may be at trace levels and within legal limits for drinking water. EWG has no information indicating that benzene is actually present in any of these products at any level, however, we recommend that consumers avoid any amount of benzene in drinks intended for children (listed alphabetically):

Country Time Lemonade
Crystal Light Sunrise Classic Orange
Diet Pepsi Twist
Diet Pepsi Vanilla
Diet RockStar Energy Drink
Fanta Orange
Fanta Pineapple
Fruit20 Plus 10 Natural Apple
Giant Fruity Punch Cooler
Hawaiian Punch Fruit Juicy Red
Hawaiian Punch Lemonade
Hi-C Blast, Orange Supernova
Kool-Aid Jammers Blue-Raspberry
Kool-Aid Jammers Cherry
Kool-Aid Jammers Grape
Kool-Aid Jammers Orange
Lo-Carb Monster Energy
Monster Energy
Pepsi Twist Lemon
RockStar Energy Drink
Sierra Mist
Sunkist
Sunny D
Sunny D Baja
Sunny D Intense Sport Cool Punch
Sunny D Orange-Fused Strawberry
Sunny D Smooth
Sunny D Smooth + Calcium
Tampico Citrus Punch
Tampico Grape Punch
Tampico Tropical Punch
Tropicana Twister Diet Soda (Diet Orange)
Tropicana Twister Soda Grape
Tropicana Twister Soda Orange
Tropicana Twister Soda Strawberry

Benzene has been known to cause cancer in humans, in other words.

Oh no. Oh no oh no oh no. I could care less. Thanks for telling me this, but I'm looking for some delicious orange soda, I'm not going to care about this. I'm going to drink that Sunkist. Cause you know what? No one lives forever. Are you willing to accept that? I have. I could care less how I go, it's just a matter of when. I'll drink my soda and live for the moment, thank you.

What the funk. Am I supposed to live off of Sprite!?

First, I have olcers, and drinking dark soda (like Dr. Pepper, which happens to be my favorite) gives me stomach ache's, and headache's quite often.

Now this? I can't drink Sierra Mist, Sunny D, or whatnot?

Damn pop. The tastes are just too dangerously good I guess.

And it's funny to not see Mountain Dew up there, but hey, it kills the sperm.

Alot of my friends are mormon, Im starting to not drink Coke and other caffiene products for respect...and the fact that its better for you to drink water

Im starting to lay off the energy drinks, caffiene drinks, and just anything with sodium in general (Cept tonic water and Faygo... )

I have to watch my diet...im working out at Gold's gym and im gonna maintain a male figure...no more drinks for meh

I dunno about going to the gym (PE at my school seems to be enough... we have a weight room...) but I hear ya on the eating, drinking, and being right, thing. ^^

*yawns* Soda in general never really tasted all that good. The sweetest thing I'll ever drink is KoolAid (NOT JAMMERS! OMG CANCER!) or Orange Juice (NOT SUNNY-D!!! )

Yeah, actually the second I saw this I HAD to post it.

I dunno, the first thought that came to mind is how our friends so relgiously drink Monster, especially Zoso. I was suddenly worried for everyone.

I recall something like this turned up around a decade ago. All I remember is my mom telling my brother and I that we can't drink Diet anything because it causes cancer. That was probably when they were using Saccharin.

Yeah, and TAB (the original Diet Coke) was one of the main culprits. Ironically TAB just came out with an energy drink.

Zoso and I just got back from 7-Eleven and while there we read the ingredients of several of the sodas. It looks like Lost and Mountain Dew really don't have this mixture of ingredients mentioned in the article.

When I was reading the ingredients on a can of Rockstar, I noticed after the ingredients that were mentioned not to consume when mixed together it said in parentheses, "To protest the flavor."

Damn, and Lost tastes nasty. Must check out No Fear and Red Jak. I'm just happy that Wild Cherry Pepsi isn't on the list... but yeah, the part about benzene being a component of gasoline made me want to puke.

Alas, poor Monster... I knew ye well.
