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Health minister Jesus Mantilla said: "The product should be withdrawn from circulation to preserve the health of Venezuelans."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

Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!
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.

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
