I drink coke WAY too much on a weekly basis. Cokes taste very good, but they are not that good for your body for obvious reasons, but did you know drinking coke raises your risk for cancer in the future. Due to the caramel coloring in some drinks like coke, scientists are proving that it may increase the populations risk for developing cancer. Due to how much of this chemical they put into coke, in California they now have a law that companies must put a warning label on their drinks if the amount of 4-MEI is to pose an excess cancer risk of more than 1 case in every 100,000 exposed people. Alongside this new cancer risk, coke has other health issues.
