Drink awareness – well something like that anyway

With the festive season fast approaching, the supermarkets are gearing up for the annual surge in the purchase of drinks. Trolley after trolley in the queue for the checkouts, all piled up with the bargains that are on offer. There’s certain to be a few “interesting” parties, and even more certainty of a number of sore heads and vomit puddles in the aftermath.

 Just what goes into some of our favourite tipples;

After a few drinks, some people probably won’t even care what they’re drinking, and to be fair none of us would probably expect to find chemicals or ingredients that could potentially kill us.

 Here are a few interesting things we found out whilst having a quiet evening in with our old friends Mr Jack Daniels and Mr Google.

Tropicana Orange Juice:

Coca Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. found a banned chemical (fungicide) inside Tropicana orange juice. The Food & Drug Administration tested the juice and found that the levels of fungicide are acceptable. However, there is one problem. Fungicide can dissolve testicles.

 Diet Coke and other diet drinks:

A UK documentary looked at the significant increase in people dying of brain cancer. They found that the artificial sweeteners in diet coke and other diet sodas was a cause. Aspertame is deadly and should be consumed with caution.


Beer does have high levels of ethanol. This gas is actually recognized by UN as a weapon of mass destruction.

 Apple Juice:

Watch out before drinking apple juice. Consumer Reports and the FDA in the USA found that there were exceeding levels of arsenic in some apple juices. The reason why arsenic is present in apples is because of the soil the trees are grown in. The soil which contains arsenic contaminates the fruit which contaminates the juice


In 1990, benzene caused this company to recall its product. The company still alleged that there was less benzene than in cigarettes. Angry consumers formed a lawsuit against the giant saying they knew their products were tainted and sold them anyways.

Coca Cola milk drinks:

Coca Cola milk drinks in China were found to contain methomyl and thiodicarb. These chemicals are used in pesticides. The milk drinks were Minute Maid Super Milky drinks. One boy died from poisoning while 2 others were affected.

Various Soft drinks:

 Many soft drinks and bottled waters contained a chemical called Dihydrogen Monoxide which is deadly. The chemical can cause death through suffocation. Oxygen will not be absorbed in the lungs as a result.

 So what can you do ?

Maybe it’s time to forget about a fridge, or a cooler, and perhaps consider keeping your drinks in a chemical storage cabinet from Work Area Ltd, or perhaps not.

Either way, drink safely and responsibly.

And whatever else you may do, PLEASE and do not drive if you have consumed alcohol …..
