PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi said the cola company would invest $500 million in India over the next three years to triple its business in the country.
In our opinion, many of the products PepsiCo sells like soda (carbonated cola drinks)Â and snacks are just not healthy for the people consuming them.
Further, cola companies have also been held responsible by studies for the depletion of precious ground water in India.
PepsiCo’s $500 million investment in India comes as consumers in developed countries have become wiser to the harmful effects of carbonated cola drinks and are turning to healthier alternatives.
PepsiCo claims to have invested $700 million in India since 1989.
These big corporate industries are the main culprit in large masses in trouble. Just look at the sub-prime issue in the US.
The Iraqi war is another example of the corporate carnivore.
The oil speculators have all made our lives threatened and complicated while they are making a fast buck.

Wall Street is peopled by idiots who talk big & take big but know little really. Unhealthy greed supported our clueless politicians (both Republicans & Democrats) is at the root of the current mess.

I am just surprised how the indian people have become zombies and still drinking these floor cleaners…
I stopped drinking them 10 years ago when the allegations started… they put pesticides in the drink to control the microbial growth and add a cyanide based organic component in order to tweak the molecules to hold chillness for longer period…
I wonder whether these zombies know that, Indira Nooyi wont drink even a drop of the pepsi, because she knows its nothing but poison…
