Did you know one can of orange soda ‘Fanta’ houses:
23g of processed sugar (the crappy, chemically-treated type of sugar)

Stuff called: ‘Natural Orange Flavourings with Other Natural Flavourings’ ❓
Acesulfame K – an artificial sweetener found in sugar-free gum, alcohol, candy & sweet yoghurts. Its main chemical component, ‘methylene chloride’ may cause nausea, mood disorders, possibly some types of cancer, impaired liver & kidney function, eyesight issues & even perhaps autism.

Aspartame – a cheap, dangerous sweetener used in more than 6,000 food & drink products + over 500 prescription & over-the-counter drugs. Recently found to have carcinogenic (AKA dangerous & potentially deadly) effects, aspartame is now undergoing further investigation due to the fact it may also impair memory performance & increase oxidative stress in the brain.
‘A source of Phenylalanine’ – an ingredient that may be very dangerous to anyone consuming aspartame. Basically, too much Phenylalanine in the body = neurotoxicity which means it can excite the neurons in your brain to the point of cellular death.

I could go on & on, but you get the dismal picture…

I remain utterly disgusted with the company choosing to make & sell this low-grade, unhealthy chemical bomb.

I offer you (& any children in your life!) this healthier, yummier alternative:
