Oh, is it carcinogenic? I tried finding some published journal articles about it on Google just now and got too many news sites that don't link to their cited studies. I'm curious and will look at databases, but if you've got one off the top of your head, shoot it my way.

Well, there have been some studies and research linking carcinogenic properties of soda to cancer. Here's a recent article I found that measures the levels on various sodas:

"As she raised a glass of water, everyone exptected they'd be asked the "half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired, "How heavy is this glass of water?" The answers called out ranged from 8oz. to 20 oz. She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." She continued, "The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. think about them for awhile and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything. Always remember to put the glass down."

Looks like Coca-Cola has cleaned up their act, though Wikipedia says that 4-Methylimidazole is found in plenty of other commonly consumed food items as well.

Here's the article about the Coca-Cola thing--but I really wish I had found a nice, meaty journal article to actually read about this rather than secondhand news articles. Still looking to see the current state of things.

Pepsi's still in the red, Coke has taken almost all of it out.

Runny shits would be great. Mine does this weird intermittent spraying thing.

Like an spray bottle. But full of shit.
