A new class-action lawsuit in the US alleges Coca-Cola and Simply Orange Juice deceived customers with claims of an all-natural, healthy product when the juice has been found to be contaminated with toxic PFAS at levels “hundreds of times” above federal advisory limits for drinking water.
PFAS are a class of about 12,000 chemicals typically used to make thousands of consumer products resist water, stains and heat.
They are called “forever chemicals” because they do not naturally break down, and they are linked to cancer, fetal complications, liver disease, kidney disease, autoimmune disorders and other serious health issues.
One beer might per day could qualify as healthy for an adult male, maybe two for enormous lads. The liver will neutralize the alcohol in one swoop. Just don’t consume sugar with it - which disqualifies most light beers, of course.
We will be hearing a lot about PFAS and similar chemicals in 2023.
Chances are the PFAS in Simply Orange come from their packaging which means that other drinks have the same issues.
In my opinion one of the few things that CA got right is Prop 65. Here is a list of 900 substances (carcinogens or reproductive toxins) and if your product has one of these substances over a safe limit then it has to be labelled with a Prop 65 warning. If not, you get sued.
Well, fuck. I added OJ back recently to get some easy calories in, to make pea protein easier to get down, and was buying Simply, only for ENT office to tell me to 100% ditch it because OJ is a no go with LPR. Looks like they did me a double solid.
Buy the juice that’s in OP and then buy some expensive fresh squeezed stuff. Now don’t put either in the fridge. The real fresh squeezed should go bad in 3-5 days. The juice in the OP can go weeks. Of course there’s some shitty chemicals in there.
