I totally agree with brewhaha; I'm not stopping now. At 59 years old, my body has already unknowingly been exposed to many carcinogens and questionable substances. I cannot change any of that now, and I feel my risk factors are already in place.

To each their own I guess, one may have this caviler attitude now until they are in the middle of the battle when maybe the one can no longer turn back...

When the enjoyment of life becomes a reality where you start to notice aches and pains but tell your self that is part of getting old Madison Avenue myth, (MAm) or your hearing gets worst, vision to the point can't read or see TV, mobility to the point of it is too much bother, next the lymphatic system gets trouble some, blurry vision, rubbery legs, no get up and go, the world just keeps getting smaller and smaller to the point it is a breeding ground for Cancer, and if one would have only taken the time to learn what other options are available they could be one of those living an outstanding life until they died...

BTW that was a Consumer Report

What some folks are missing the point if you must have it, one can buy a cola drink that does not use 4MLI to avoid a carcinogen ingredient.

Soda Stream does not use 4MLI and it was not on the list

ITA. I'm not much younger than you are, and I'm quite sure I've been exposed to plenty. Lead paint, asbestos, etc. My soda drink of choice is one of the lowest levels on the list.

Soda in itself is so unhealthy for many reasons.
