Avoid drinking coke rather than Anti-Lynas

When we get older, our immune system is weakening by days, uncontrolled consumption of man-made chemical compound is last thing we should do.

Fresh milk, plain water (still depending on the source of tap water), natural beverages like coffee and tea should be in our menu, where canned drinks like soda, fruit juice, etc. should be scrapped from the menu.

Coke addictive can potentially causing cancer as thorum-232 if you eat it in high doses.

Technically, coke should be banned like Lynas plant because of its cancer risk if you support anti-Lynas argument.

Colouring agent in Pepsi & Coke can cause cancer

ATLANTA: High levels of a chemical that causes tumours in animals were found in Coca-Cola and PepsiCo sodas, according to a consumer advocacy group pressing US regulators to ban a colour additive. The chemical 4-methylimidazole was found in Coca-Cola, Pepsi Cola, Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi and is the caramel colouring used in the beverages , according to a study released on Tuesday by the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

The group petitioned the US Food and Drug Administration in February to ban the ammonia sulphite colouring, which is found in most colas. “Coke and Pepsi, with the acquiescence of the FDA, are needlessly exposing millions of Americans to a chemical that causes cancer,” said Michael F Jacobson, the Washington-based group’s executive director, said. “The FDA needs to protect consumers from this risk.”

The FDA has no reason to believe there is any immediate risk from the substance and is reviewing the group’s petition, said Douglas Karas , an agency spokesman, in an e-mail . A consumer would have to drink more than a thousand cans of soda in a day to match the doses administered in studies that showed links to cancer in rodents, the FDA said.

Toxic legacy in Malaysia rare-earths village

30 years have passed since Japan’s Mitsubishi Chemicals opened a rare-earths refinery in the Malaysian village of Bukit Merah, but although the plant is gone, its toxic legacy persists.

nkkhoo says:

Don’t compare an orange with an apple. Bukit Merah’s tin sludge is more radioactive than Lynas rare earth residue.

Chungying says:

The moral of the story is still the same.

Michiko says:

It will be too late to shut down Lynas if scientific evidence proves that it will be harmful to the people’s health and the environment. By then the damage would have occurred. I don’t think this is the way to approach this issue. If we are not sure, don’t do it, as simple as that. Malaysia does not need this. I think most the people have no confidence in AELB’s impartiality. We are not a nation known for its integrity and professionalism. So corruption could lead to concealing of harmful information or illegal dumping at sites not designated. Lack of professionalism could lead to poor monitoring and adhering of safety standards.

niceguy says:

Just read a news headline: Coca-Cola and Pepsi ‘change recipe to avoid putting a cancer warning on their labels’.

Ken says:

NKKhoo, The comparison to coke is very irresponsible. Drinking coke or eating Mcdonald will not cause irreversible damage to large area of habitat whereas contamination of radioactive particles will.

“Bird populations in Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture appear to be more whacked by the effects of low-level radiation than expected—based on responses by the same species around Chernobyl after that nuclear power plant disaster. This according to a new paper in the science journal Environmental Pollution.”

nkkhoo says:

Do you understand alpha, beta and gamma emissions before you quote a link and understand the impacts of Japanese nuclear reactor’s melt-down disaster?

There are DAP and CAP idiots by quoting isotope half-life and PPM to implicate Thorium-232 is more dangerous than Uranium used in the nuclear reactor.

Why you believe in Lim Guan Eng, an accountant trained in Australia, not PAS MP Zulkifli, a doctorate in nuclear science trained UK when the subject is radioactivity?

Yes, our illiterate kampong folks may believe their twisted stories, but not for people with tertiary education qualifications.

You shall not joining such a fool bandwagon if you do not know what you are talking about.

How many people can understand this below technical report on toxicological profile for Thourim? I admit I am not although I can understand almost every single English word used in the report.

Any well-educated person should read any scientific statement with care and consult the experts in the field if we cannot understand the real meaning in the reports.

Coke kills you with kencing manis more than anything else!

nkkhoo says:

My late father drunk coca-cola till his last day. He died of heart attack, not diabetics. My mum was also a coke addict until my father passed away 14 year ago. She regretted for her coke diet habit now.

A cousin died of lung cancer at 46.

A childhood friend also has habit to take coke everyday, I advised him to stop consuming any canned drink if he wanted to live longer.

Justin Hew says:

For the same reason we should avoid McDonald’s and KFC as they fed you with these unhealthy soda drinks.

I boycott KFC just like I boycott Gardenia.

nkkhoo says:

Another health risk is recycled cooking oil used by fast food restaurants.

In Sin Chew special reports,

Leo says:

nkkhoo should have a separate column to highlight the risks of recycled oil (‘Black Heart’ Oil). I suspect many hawkers are using such cooking oil to save cost (to achieve the price point of Menu 1Rakyat?).

If you go to any goreng pisang stall or you-char-kuey stalls, notice how dark the cooking oil is – sign of many generations of recycled oil.

The source of recycled cooking oil are likely from fast food resturants.

nkkhoo says:

Roadside hawkers will add melting plastic straws to change the black color recycled cooking oil to its original color.

My brother saw the magic effect of using melted plastic straws and warned me to stop eating fried bananas from these roadside stalls.

Leo says:

Coca-Cola Co and PepsiCo Inc are making changes to the production of an ingredient in their namesake colas to avoid the need to label the packages with a cancer warning.

Michiko says:

If the Malaysian Govt is entertaining any thoughts of Lynas shipping the waste back to Australia, they are dreaming because Australia has categorically announced they will not allow any radioactive waste to be shipped to back to Australia. Which then begs the other question. If such waste are not welcomed in Australia why is our Govt so stupid to allow such a plant on our soil in the first place knowing full well that there will be radioactive waste generated which needs to be disposed off?

Temporary or permanent license It is a licence to start the plant. They say the waste is to ship to Australia then but qualifying that statement by saying that IF Lynas can’t find a permanent disposal place in Malaysia?

That the catch? If Lynas can not find a permanent place for disposal they will not come here. Lynas & BN are not stupid. They have invested millions on the plant and it is here. By all mean they will stay here and start their business. The waste is also here to stay. Make no mistake on it.

nkkhoo says:

The issue is not radioactive waste, is how to manage and disposal waste safely.

Almost all factories in Bolehland do not dispose industrial wastes safely, they are as harmful as Lynas wastes. The difference is one is labeled with radioactive and others are not.

Coke addictive can potentially causing cancer as thorum-232 if you eat it in high doses.

Technically, coke should be banned like Lynas plant because of its cancer risk if you support anti-Lynas arguments.

Mojo Jujur says:

BN will only ban stuff according to its religious interpretations. Radioactive is not mentioned during the prophet time, so easy excuse for BN.
