JAPAN, EU BAN MOUNTAIN DEW AND FRESCA FOR INGREDIENT THAT CAUSES MEMORY LOSS
We always knew that fast food was bad for you, to the degree that just eating McDonald’s could lead to literal organ failure. But we’ve always also known that soda is bad for you. Especially since no one makes soda with proper sugar anymore, using high fructose corn syrup instead. But that doesn’t explain why the EU and Japan have just banned both Mountain Dew and Fresca. Sure, high fructose corn syrup is really bad for humans. But both the EU and Japan still let their citizens consume it in bulk. So why the ban? Well, because both Mountain Dew and Fresca contain yet another dangerous ingredient. But this one can cause memory loss. Wait, what was I just saying?
MOUNTAIN DEW AND FRESCA BOTH CONTAIN BROMINATED VEGETABLE OIL, WHICH MEANS BROMINE
Now to be fair, this isn’t great news for me to relate. Back when soda was a nice delivery system, I certainly enjoyed the fairly regular 2-liter bottle of Mountain Dew. Especially in college, when easy and tasty caffeine consumption made staying awake to study an easy, regular fix. But it just doesn’t taste the same anymore. Yet I’m still fairly shocked to learn that Mountain Dew and Fresca use brominated vegetable oil. And as you might guess, brominated means bromine. Well, guess what? Bromine is an element in some flame retardants. And that’s yet can build up in your body, leading to memory loss, skin and nerve issues.
IF YOU READ THIS AND FORGET, YOU MAY DRINK TOO MUCH MOUNTAIN DEW AND FRESCA
So when you absorb that, as it were, it makes a little more sense for both the EU and Japan to ban Mountain Dew and Fresca! For some reason, they don’t want their people eating food that contains bromine, and have banned anything containing that “ingredient.” So why would anyone put a memory loss ingredient in their product? It might be because it’s a cheaper way to keep citrus flavoring from dissipating in their products. I guess memory loss is ok in the U.S. and elsewhere, as even my writing this will disappear in the memory hole.
For some reason.
