Can't find it now but I was reading something about coke the other day.
Varies all over the place according to how cheaply it can be made taking
into account what is permitted in each country. I gained the impression
most mainland Europe coke is less safe than the UK or USA but the safest
appears to be the Chinese version. Different sweetener. I drink about 10
cans a year so don't expect to die of it any time soon.
California's proposition 65 is what you would expect from the land of
the fruits and the nuts. All you have to do is warn that your product
contains something on their list. It does not necessarily prohibit its
use. You'll see labels on gas pumps, liquor stores, even bars with a
Prop 65 warning.
Like you say, the Prop 65 warnings are one so many things that they're
useless. The lanyard on my camera came with a CA obligated warning.
It's been interesting watching the comments about Coke's decision as
though those of a particular political stripe are anti-California
regardless of the topic. Makes me wonder which kind of 3rd world
shithole they're working toward. Or maybe China envy where they get to
dump their industrial waste into the food supply.
The fruits and nuts probably wanted to ban chemicals known to the state
of California to cause cancer outright, but settled for a warning sticker.
Oh, and like the gp post, I'd would mind seeing Coke pull their products
to show CA who's boss. It might be fun to find out what their BOD would
think about abandoning a market of 37 million people.
There was a great cartoon following the New Coke fiasco. It showed the
boardroom at Coke with the honchoes looking at a newspaper blaring a
headline about Coke going back to original recipe. The cutline : "Where
are going to get all that cocaine?"
People thought cybersex was a safe alternative,
