Pepsi decides to stop using a known carcinogen

The power of corporate greed is such that, even after 4-methylimidazole was found to cause cancer, Pepsi continued to ship product containing it.  They removed it from product sold in California after a new law requiring labeling of carcinogens, but it’s taken until now for them to commit to removing it nationwide (and even then, not until around the end of 2013).  Well, at least they’re finally taking this step.  You’re probably still better off sticking with tap water though!
