Pepsi Kills Girl Stock Seized

In consumer forum, Health on February 13, 2014 at 07:40

My children buy Coca coal and Pepsi in large containers being sold by the Companies and keep them in the Fridge, despite my informing them these products are harmful for health even when their shelf life is in tact and is  poisonous when used after their expiry date.

Soft drink Pepsi Kills

Pepsi Kills a Girl

Regarding Expiry date on Packs of Food Products.

People take the Expiry date printed on the Pack to be a Gospel Truth.

Fact is that they are changed after they are returned by the Retailer to the Manufacturer by the Retailer.

New Expiry/Manufacturing Date Labels  are fixed and sent to the market afresh to other Regions.

Though sounds outrageous. is True.

I should know having been in the FMCG and Food Products Comanches as a Senior Management Professional in them.

I have written quite a few posts on Coca Cola’s hazards and how it has killed people.

Now comes the news that Pepsi has killed a Child in Tamil Nadu.

Asa follow-up action, Pepsi stock  has been seized in Chennai and the investigation is on whether these products are spurious.

Story:

yes! pepsi do kill the organs of the human body because of the acids which are in it. Those acid do not effect suddenly by drinking pepsi but they effect slowly. You can’t see the effects but though you can feel the effects. You will feel pain in your backbone, knees, chest etc. Pepsi do effect the bones of our body and by drinking regularly your bones will become weaker day by day. You will realize this thing after 6 months regular drink.”

Abhirami, consumed the drink along with her three siblings Lalithaa (10), Kausalya (6) and Paramasivan (3).  However, shortly after taking the drink, the children developed nausea, stomach pain and vomiting, Times of India reported.

The panic-stricken parents acted quickly and took their little ones to a nearby primary health centre and later to a government general hospital in Cuddalore. However, doctors couldn’t save Abhirami’s life and she died at the hospital.  On doctors’ recommendation, the other three were later shifted to Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (Jipmer) in Puducherry.  According to reports, Lalithaa is still in a critical condition, while the other two chidlren Kausalya and Paramasivan are stable.

Police have arrested the owner of the shop Nagarathinam, for investigation.  Meanwhile, authorities have closed down the shop and collected samples of the soft drink for testing.  Officials said they are waiting to get the lab results to confirm reasons behind the incident.

The Criminal Side Coca Cola Story World Video

In consumer forum on October 20, 2013 at 10:31

I have quite a few posts on the dangers posed by Co ca Cola to Health.

Coca Cola.

Coco Cola.I love Coke commericals? I can’t help it, I do. I’m not a Coca Cola drinker myself, as I gave up dark colas, despite my love for them due to my teeth being so senstivie. But when it comes to commercials, Coke has always brought a smile to my face.sourchttp://rantsnrascals.com/2013/06/coca-cola-more-than-just-a-soft-drink/e.

Here I am proving information on the Cases involving Coca Cola throughout the World and the way Coca Cola is trying to discredit Center for Science and Management ,India.

Lawsuits were filed in the United States in 2001 and 2006 by the United Steelworkers of America and the International Labor Rights Fund on behalf of SINALTRAINAL, several of its members who were falsely imprisoned and the survivors of Isidro Gil and Adolfo de Jesus Munera, two of its murdered officers. The lawsuits charged Coca-Cola bottlers “contracted with or otherwise directed paramilitary security forces that utilized extreme violence and murdered, tortured, unlawfully detained or otherwise silenced trade union leaders.” The lawsuits and campaign were developed to force Coca-Cola to once and for all end further bloodshed, compensate victims and provide safe working conditions.

The Campaign called for the main judge, Joseph E. Martinez, who presided over the original lawsuits against The Coca-Cola Co. and its Colombian bottlers in Federal District Court in Miami, Florida, to recuse himself because of serious conflicts of interest and statements he made about the case. (Read “Talking Points” 3 on Martinez)

Coca-Cola, which is virulently anti-union, claims that any allegations that its bottlers in Colombia are involved in the systematic intimidation, kidnapping, torture, and murder of union leaders are false. Yet the company has fought every effort to have an independent investigation into these allegations while at the same time has misled the public and its own shareholders with a long string of lies and bogus investigations. (Read “Talking Points” 4 on bogus investigations)

Guatemala

On February 25, 2010, another human rights abuse lawsuit against Coca-Cola was filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York and later moved to federal district court. “This case involves a campaign of violence – including rape, murder, and attempted murder – against trade unionists and their families at the behest of the management of Coca-Cola bottling and processing plants in Guatemala.”

It should be noted what happened in the ’70s and ’80s in Guatemala City: According to “Soft Drink, Hard Labor” published by the Latin America Bureau (UK) in 1987, “For nine years the 450 workers at the Coca-Cola bottling plant in Guatemala City fought a battle for their jobs, their trade union and their lives. Three times they occupied the plant — on the last occasion for 13 months. Three General Secretaries of their union were murdered and five other workers killed. Four more were kidnapped and have disappeared. Against all the odds they survived.”

Turkey

In Turkey, in 2005, 105 workers at a Coca-Cola bottling plant in Istanbul joined a union and were terminated. They organized a lengthy sit-down strike in front of the main offices of Coca-Cola in Turkey. After several weeks of protesting, Coca-Cola workers entered the building to demand their reinstatement. While leaders of the workers were meeting with senior management for the company, the company ordered Turkish riot police to attack the workers who were by all accounts peacefully assembled, many with their spouses and children. Nearly two hundred of them were beaten badly and many required hospitalization. Lawsuits are pending.

China

In China: Based on undercover investigations at several Coke plants, Chinese press reported in December 2008 that Coke employees are “involved in the most dangerous, intense and tiresome labor, work the longest hours, but receive the lowest wages and face arrears and even cutbacks in their pay.” One investigator claimed that Coke violated Chinese labor laws and reported that workers “often worked 12 hours per day for an entire month without a single day off.”

In a report, “Violence in Coca-Cola’s Labor Subcontracting System in China,” it was revealed:

“On the 12 August 2009, a labor dispatch company hired by Coca-Cola’s designated Hangzhou-based bottling plant was discovered to have threatened two university student-workers who asked for their own and their two other fellow workers’ back pay upon their resignation. Xiao Liang, 24, was beaten up by two managers at the labor dispatch company’s office, resulting in serious wounds over his left eye, left hand, and right ear. Xiao Xu sent Xiao Liang to the Dongfang Hospital immediately after police arrived on the scene. Xiao Liang was later diagnosed with a ruptured eardrum, resulting in compromised hearing capacity…”

Two years earlier, BBC News (5/21/07) reported that Coca-Cola has been accused of benefiting from prison labor in China.

Mexico

Mexico, the country with the highest per capita consumption of Coca-Cola, is a huge profit center for Coke to the detriment of the health of millions of children and adults who suffer an inordinate rate of obesity, diabetes and other serious maladies. Dr. Ann Lopez, author and environmental science Professor, Ph.D. at San Jose City College in California, and Director of the Center for Farmworker Families states:

“The people of west central Mexico are easy corporate prey for predator Coke. You can’t stand anywhere in some of the rural towns and not see a Coke ad. I’ve seen what Coke is doing in the west central Mexico countryside where I do research: pushing their addictive products on peasant populations who can ill afford them and in which one in 10 may have undiagnosed diabetes.”

To control the soft drinks market in Mexico, Coca-Cola has shown repeatedly it will break the law. The Angel Alvarado Agüero case, currently in the Mexican courts, describes how this former marketing executive of Coca-Cola was unjustifiably dismissed when he refused to carry out illegal monopolistic marketing practices as directed by the Company. This case also highlights how The Coca-Cola Co. is cheating Mexican workers out of hundreds of millions of dollars in profit sharing and other benefits and shortchanging the Mexican government out of millions of dollars in tax revenues.

Investigative reporter Beverly Bell pointed out that “…more than 12 million people do not have access to potable water in Mexico.” She explains how then-Mexican President Vicente Fox, who prior to his election in 2000 was president of Coca-Cola in Mexico and Latin America, “…with help from the World Bank-has successfully pursued water privatization, as well as a massive land privatization program, that allowed companies free access to all the resources on the land, including water.”

Bell wrote in 2006, “Since 2000 [while Fox was president], Coca-Cola has negotiated 27 water concessions from the Mexican government. Nineteen of the concessions are for the extraction of water from aquifers and from 15 different rivers, some of which belong to indigenous peoples. Eight concessions are for the right of Coke to dump its industrial waste into public waters.”

El Salvador

In addition to abuse of workers, Coke has been involved in the exploitation of children by benefiting from hazardous child labor in sugar cane fields in El Salvador. This was first documented by Human Rights Watch in 2004 and in footage taken in 2007 for a nationally-televised British documentary and highlighted in Mark Thomas’s book “Belching Out the Devil: Global Adventures with Coca-Cola,” published in 2009 in the U.S.

Representatives of the International Labor Organization interviewed company representatives at Colombian Coca-Cola bottling plants in 2008 to ascertain whether they exercised any control of suppliers of raw materials (such as sugar) to ensure that they did not use child labor. The manager at the Coke plant in Cali said that their suppliers should not use child labor, but added “that the enterprise [Coca-Cola] did not yet exercise oversight over this issue.”

India

Of the 200 countries where Coca-Cola is sold, India reportedly has the fastest-growing market, but the adverse environmental impacts of its operations there have subjected The Coca-Cola Co. and its local bottlers to a firestorm of criticism and protest. There has been a growing outcry against Coca-Cola’s production practices throughout India, which are draining out vast amounts of public groundwater and turning farming communities into virtual deserts. Suicide rates among Indian farmers whose livelihoods are being destroyed are growing at an alarming rate. Every day for years there has been some form of protest, from large demonstrations to small vigils, against Coca-Cola’s abuses in India.

One target of protest has been the Coca-Cola bottling plant in Plachimada, Kerala, which has remained shut down since March 2004 as a result of the community-led campaign in Plachimada challenging Coca-Cola’s abuse of water resources.

Campaign Supporters Outside
Coca-Cola’s New York City Offices.

The International Environmental Law Research Centre issued a report in 2007 that stated, in part, “The deterioration of groundwater in quality and quantity and the consequential public health problems and the destruction of the agricultural economy are the main problems identified in Plachimada. The activity of The Coca Cola Company has caused or contributed a great deal to these problems…The availability of good quality water for drinking purposes and agriculture has been affected dangerously due to the activity of the Company. Apart from that, the Company had also polluted the agricultural lands by depositing the hazardous wastes. All these points to the gross violation of the basic human rights, that is, the right to life, right to livelihood and the violation of the pollution control laws.”

In 2009, the government of Kerala set up the High Power Committee to Assess the Extent of Damages Caused by the Coca-Cola Plant at Plachimada, India, which “recommended that Coca-Cola be held liable for Indian Rupees 216 crore (US$ 48 million) for damages caused as a result of the company’s bottling operations in Plachimada.”

Just exactly how Corporations treat people, especially those in the third world. In this feature length documentary, directors German Gutierrez and Carmen Garcia present a searing indictment of the Coca-Cola empire and its alleged kidnapping, torture and murder of union leaders trying to improve working conditions in Colombia, Guatemala and Turkey.

The filmmakers follow labor rights lawyers Daniel Kovalik and Terry Collingsworth and an activist for the Stop Killer-Coke! campaign, Ray Rogers, as they attempt to hold the giant U.S. multinational beverage company accountable in this legal and human rights battle.

Many union leaders at Coca-Cola’s Colombian bottling plants have been murdered. Hundreds of other Coke workers have been tortured, kidnapped and/or illegally detained by violent paramilitaries, often working closely with plant managements.

Coca Cola Causes Abortion?

In consumer forum on March 25, 2013 at 19:12

I read a Post where it mentioned that Coca Cola is being used to cause abortion.

Though I have posted about the ill-health that might be caused by Co co Coal I never imagined this is possible.

I searched and found some interesting information .

That this information might be true indeed and women use this as a form of self-induced abortion.

But this information is subject to proof.

Coco Cola cases

Coco Cola cases

‘There are a number of anecdotally recorded and disseminated methods of performing a self-induced abortion. Many of the following methods present significant danger (see below) to the life orhealth of the woman:

  • physical exertion designed to bring about a miscarriage
  • abdominal massage
  • receiving punches, kicks, or other blows to the abdominal area
  • bellyflopping onto a hard surface
  • attempted removal of the fetus with a coat-hanger or similar device inserted into the uterus through the cervix[4] (the historical use of this method has led to instances of its use as a symbol against the pro-life movement, illustrating dangers of barring state-condoned abortion)[5]
  • attempted piercing of the fetus with a knitting needle or similar device inserted into the uterus through the cervix[4]
  • suction through the insertion of a rubber tube into the uterus via the cervix
  • ingesting abortifacients, high quantities of vitamin CPennyroyal or other substances believed to induce miscarriage[6]
  • douching with substances believed to induce miscarriage (beginning in the 1960s, many women used Coca Cola for this purpose, although its utility is at best dubious)
  • vaginal pessaries
  • yoga
  • acupuncture at points linked to miscarriage
  • hypothermia

In a letter to the New York Times, gynecologist Waldo L. Fielding wrote:

The familiar symbol of illegal abortion is the infamous “coat hanger” — which may be the symbol, but is in no way a myth. In my years in New York, several women arrived with a hanger still in place. Whoever put it in — perhaps the patient herself — found it trapped in the cervix and could not remove it.

However, not simply coat hangers were used.
Almost any implement you can imagine had been and was used to start an abortion — darning needles, crochet hooks, cut-glass salt shakers, soda bottles, sometimes intact, sometimes with the top broken off.[4]

‘Yes. One 12 oz oca Cola is all it takes to end a human life. Many women when late try to end their pregnancy, in poor countries, and over a period of time, they’ve worked out the best way to do it.

All they need is a 12 oz bottle of Coca Cola. This they boil for fifteen minutes. Then they leave it out in the midday sun from morning til afternoon.

This must do something to alter the chemical composition, because that alone, when drunk, can be fully effective to cause an abortion. They only add headache pills to beef up the solution, and whack, the pregnancy’s over. It works in about half of cases, my partner assures me. Her friends have used it successfully.

What chemicals are there inside Coca Cola which achieves this outcome, I wonder?

Another report says that a metal coin left in Coca Cola for a week will dissolve into the liquid. You put an egg in Coca Cola and the shell disappears.’

Coca Cola causes Cancer.

The concerns relate to an artificial brown colouring agent that the researchers say could be causing thousands of cancers.

‘The caramel colouring used in Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and other foods is contaminated with two cancer-causing chemicals and should be banned,’ said the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a health lobby group based in Washington, DC.

‘In contrast to the caramel one might make at home by melting sugar in a saucepan, the artificial brown colouring in colas and some other products is made by reacting sugars with ammonia and sulphites under high pressure and temperatures.

‘Chemical reactions result in the formation of two substances known as 2-MI and 4-MI which in government-conducted studies caused lung, liver, or thyroid cancer or leukaemia in laboratory mice or rats.’

America’s National Toxicology Program says that there is ‘clear evidence’ that both 2-MI and 4-MI are animal carcinogens, and therefore likely to pose a risk to humans.

Researchers at the University of California, Davis, found significant levels of 4-MI in five brands of cola.}”

Coca-Cola Kills Woman

In consumer forum, Health on February 12, 2013 at 20:14

A woman was killed by consuming Coca Cola in New Zealand which prompted the Coroner who performed the autopsy to advise Coca Cola to put health warnings on its caffeinated products!

 

It has become a fashion to drink and brag  ‘ I drink Coca Cola’  has become a fashion!

 

Beware.

 

Story:

 

Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola

 

A New Zealand woman’s 2.2 gallon a day Coca-Cola habit was a major factor in her death, a coroner found Tuesday, urging the soft drink giant to put health warnings on its caffeinated products.

Natasha Harris, a 30-year-old mother of eight from Invercargill in southern New Zealand, drank huge amounts of the fizzy beverage for years before her death in February 2010, coroner David Crerar found.

He said Harris suffered from a number of health conditions which could be linked to the “extreme” amounts of Coke she downed, playing a role in the cardiac arrhythmia that finally killed her.

“I find that when all the available evidence is considered, were it not for the consumption of very large quantities of Coke by Natasha Harris, it is unlikely that she would have died when she died and how she died,” he found.

He added that Harris’s Coke habit “was a substantial factor that contributed to the development of the metabolic imbalances which gave rise to the arrhythmia.

A pathologist found Harris, who did not drink alcohol, had an enlarged liver due to fatty deposits caused by excessive sugar consumption and low potassium levels in her blood, which can affect cardiac function.

Her family said she complained of a “racing heart” before her death and they considered her addicted to Coke, which she drank throughout her waking hours.

“(She would) go crazy if she ran out… she would get the shakes, withdrawal symptoms, be angry, on edge and snappy,” her mother-in-law Vivien Hodgkinson told the inquest into her death last year.

Harris’s family told the inquest she had all her teeth removed after they went rotten due to excessive soft drink consumption and at least one of her children was born with no enamel on its teeth.

Crerar said the family had not considered her Coke habit dangerous because the drink did not carry any health warnings.

He recommended “that Coca-Cola give consideration to the inclusion of advice as to quantity of caffeine on labels (in) its products and… adding appropriate warnings related to the dangers of consuming excessive quantities of the products”.

He also said authorities should examine whether health warnings were needed and consider lowering the maximum amount of caffeine allowed in carbonated beverages.
