Health Venezuela Bans Coke Zero Over Health Fears

Wiseman_2

Missy wants blood!
Coke Zero has been banned in Venezuela because of possible health risks.

The government, led by Hugo Chavez, ordered the removal of the soft drink from stores while its ingredients are investigated.

Health minister Jesus Mantilla said: "The product should be withdrawn from circulation to preserve the health of Venezuelans."

He did not specify which ingredients were causing concern or what health risks they posed.

Coca Cola and its Mexican-based bottling company, Femsa, said in a joint statement: "Coca Cola Zero is made under the highest quality standards around the world and meets the sanitary requirements demanded by the laws of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela."

Coke Zero tastes horribly, and it's probably cancerous. No sugar, but with added artificial sweeteners :/

Change can be a good thing
it uses Sucralose, the least researched of the artificial sweeteners - atleast its not Aspartame though, which metabolizes into toxic by products

in anycase, there is no scietific evidence to suggest Sucralose is bad, Venz. are just a bunch of jumpy tards

It has some different ingredients in South America, ones that are banned in the US.

I'm surprised he doesn't ban all evil imperialist American Coke products but then his people would revolt :)

And Coke Zero tastes great. It has like no calories or sugar so you can drink as much as you want without any concerns.

It is still an acid, it still corrodes your teeth.

Well, I think is a bit extreme really! But sure.. too much sugar is not healthy!

Post in the anime section, or die.
its just like when peru stop chlorinating their water, they thought it would pose a health issue, except this issue doesnt kill people >.>
 

Seb!

You can change this now in User CP.
They should ban themselves for being harmful.

Coke Zero is just as potent and healthy as anything else.

water can be an acid too, you know
Yeah but in the same general Ph of your mouth. If it's not... I don't think I would drink that water.

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
