A hidden danger in drinking soft drinks or soda pop, especially those with a citrus flavor such as colas, Mountain Dew, Gatorade, many sports drinks, Sprite and others is the addition of brominated vegetable oil to these drinks. This is a very toxic food additive that should be banned. It is banned in over 100 nations, but not America. It can cause a wide variety of symptoms including the following:
Cyanosis (skin blueness)
Tremors of the tongue and eyelids
TOXIC BROMINE ALSO FOUND IN COMMERCIAL BAKED PRODUCTS
Commercial bread often contains bromine used as a yeast food. This is another common source of this toxic substance. It is just one reason to avoid eating bread, especially commercially-manufactured breads and mass-produced baked goods of all kinds.
