(NaturalNews) Coca-Cola and Pepsico have both announced they are removing brominated vegetable oil (BVO) from their beverage products following a sustained social media campaign that protested the practice. Brominated vegetable oil is a flame retardant, and it's usually made from genetically modified corn or soy derivatives bonded with a bromine atom.

All bromines are endocrine disruptors, just like fluoride and chlorine (they're all in the same column on the Table of Elements). They can also interfere with iodine absorption by the thyroid, breast tissue and prostate tissue, causing nutritional deficiencies which can promote cancer.

If you've been drinking Mountain Dew, Gatorade, Fanta or other similar beverages made by Coke or Pepsi, you've been drinking brominated vegetable oil.

The 'net is loudly applauding the removal of BVO in these beverages, but almost no one seems to be aware of what they're replacing it with: sucrose acetate isobutyrate.

BVO being replaced with sucrose acetate isobutyrate

The idea of removing all synthetic chemicals from their products has apparently never occurred to Coke and Pepsi. Their products, after all, are full of artificial sweeteners and other chemicals, and it turns out they need to use emulsifier chemicals to prevent all their chemical ingredients from separating.

So now they're turning to sucrose acetate isobutyrate (SAIB), a chemical we would all hope is safer than BVO. But one study published in Food and Chemical Toxicology found that dogs fed this chemical showed enlarged livers and altered liver enzyme function: (1)

Preliminary short-term toxicity studies of sucrose acetate isobutyrate (SAIB) in the dog demonstrated that addition of this additive to the diet was associated with an increase in liver size and elevated serum alkaline phosphatase activity with no evidence of pathological change...

Sucrose acetate isobutyrate is produced by the Eastman Chemical Company (2), which describes the chemical as a "weighting agent or flavor emulsion stabilizer to prevent separation of essential citrus oils. It is also used as a fragrance fixative and to provide transfer resistance in lipstick."

Scientific studies show that sucrose acetate isobutyrate, when ingested by humans, is largely exhaled through respiration, indicating that the chemical enters the blood supply upon being ingested orally and then makes its way to the lungs. (3)

If you drink factory-made beverages, you are ingesting chemicals

The bottom line in this story? Even when companies like Coca-Cola and Pepsi are forced by public pressure to remove a toxic chemical in their products, they simply replace it with another synthetic chemical. Either way, you're still drinking synthetic chemicals.

The fact that consumers drink Gatorade at all is a sad commentary on the decline of modern civilization and the horrific state of the toxic food supply. Instead of drinking fresh, raw juices that provide plant-based nutrients, millions of people drink synthetic, factory-made artificial "sports drinks" laced with synthetic chemicals and artificial colors.

And only when the public raises a stink about a toxic ingredient does the manufacturers make any changes. But even those changes only replace one toxic chemical ingredient with another.

This is how, day after day, millions of consumers are poisoned into a state of chronic degenerate disease with synthetic, processed foods and beverages.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
