Caffeine is more addictive than nicotine according to most studies. Quitting the soft drinks is extremely difficult. Congrats to those who have done it!

Mercury Found In High Fructose Corn Syrup Used As Food Sweetener
You guessed right, it's our good pal Mercury up to no good again. Tainting another product of which Americans can't seem to get enough of.
So now you can add HFCS to the long list of Mercury tainted products and you can add Mercury Contamination to the ridiculous list of side effects caused by HFCS consumption. How fun.
Here's the quote of the day:
The bad news is that nobody knows whether or not their soda or snack food contains HFCS made from ingredients like caustic soda contaminated with mercury.
Oh noes.......What are we going to do now? Because there's no way in hell we'll just flat out stop consuming it.....
The good news is that mercury-free HFCS ingredients exist. Food companies just need a good push to only use those ingredients
Stay away from the contaminated poison. Please!
