Are you or your children addicted to Mountain Dew? Then you should know what you're drinking!
Mountain Dew, Squirt, Fresca, and Fanta all contain Brominated vegetable oil or BVO. BVO is a toxic chemical that is banned in many countries because it competes with iodine for receptor sites in the body, which can lead to hypothyroidism , autoimmune disease, and cancer! The main ingredient, bromine, is a poisonous, corrosive chemical, linked to major organ system damage, birth defects, growth problems, schizophrenia, and hearing loss.
BVO is a patented Flame Retardant for plastics that has been BANNED in foods throughout Europe and Japan. Brominated vegetable oil, which acts as an emulsifier in citrus-flavored soda drinks, is found in about 10% of sodas sold in the United States.
