May 19, Associated Press ? Food and Drug Administration finds too much benzene in five
beverages. A government analysis of more than 100 soft drinks and other beverages turned up
five with levels of cancer−causing benzene that exceed federal drinking−water standards, the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Friday, May 19. The companies that make the
drinks have been alerted and either have reformulated their products or plan to do so, the FDA
said. The five drinks are: Safeway Select Diet Orange, Crush Pineapple, AquaCal Strawberry
Flavored Water Beverage, Crystal Light Sunrise Classic Orange, and Giant Light Cranberry
Juice Cocktail. The high levels of benzene were found in specific production lots of the drinks,
the FDA said. Federal rules limit benzene levels in drinking water to five parts per billion. A
limited FDA analysis of store−bought drinks found benzene levels as high as 79 parts per
billion in one lot of Safeway Select Diet Orange.

That reminds me of 'health' class in highschool. One time they were babeling on about how thing like the Dew can lower sperm count n such. Anyway a weeks later they had this big to-do about contraception and had some visitor come to lecture us about how not to get pregnant. When asked to list some forms of effective contraception I confidently said Mt Dew!

Her look of horror is a special joy I will carry in my heart always.

Best form of contraception we had in high school in my day was the Emergency Childbirth film (B&W) that we watched in Civil Defense First Aid during health class.

We had girls passing out when it came time to cut the cord. Rolling Eyes
