If you needed just one more reason not to drink harmful stuff like Coke, Pepsi or any other soda, would shit in your soda be good enough for y’all.
Think we’re joking?
Here’s an excerpt from a CNN story (‘Soda fountains contained fecal bacteria, study found‘) on the soda shit in your glass:
Nearly half of the 90 beverages from soda fountain machines in one area in Virginia tested positive for coliform bacteria — which could indicate possible fecal contamination, according to a study published in the January issue of International Journal of Food Microbiology.
Researchers also detected antibiotic-resistant microbes and E.coli in the soda samples.
“Certainly we come in contact with bacteria all the time,” Renee Godard, lead author of the study and professor of biology and environmental studies at Hollins University, a private liberal arts college in Roanoke, Virginia. “It’s simply that some bacteria may potentially cause some disease or gastrointestinal distress. One thing we hesitate with is that people get afraid of bacteria. Many of them are benign or helpful, but certainly, I don’t want E.coli in my beverage.”
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s drinking-water regulations require that all samples test negative for E.coli.
Many of the soda beverages from the dispensers fell below U.S. drinking-water standards, according to the findings.
Enjoy your soda shit now. 🙁
