Coke, Pepsi Used as Agricultural Pesticides by India Farmers

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, December 7, 2008
Key concepts: Coke, Pepsi and Pesticides

What are Coke and Pepsi good for besides cleaning rust off the bumper of your Chevy? If you're a farmer in India, they're also good as pesticides.

It's true: Farmers there have discovered that Coke and Pepsi are low-cost pesticides that, when sprayed on crops, deter insects quite effectively.

Watch the video here:

As this video clip shows, that may be because sodas in India have, from time to time, been found to contain alarmingly-high levels of pesticides due to local water contamination (Coke and Pepsi are always bottled locally, using the local water).

Or perhaps there's something else in the sodas that deters pests. Phosphoric acid, for example, is highly acidic and may function as a pest deterrent. Or perhaps it's the aspartame in the diet soda. Since aspartame as well known to promote neurological side effects in humans, it is conceivable that it may function as a neurotoxic pesticide when sprayed on crops.

In addition to be useful as pesticides when sprayed on crops, Coke and Pepsi are also very good at cleaning up blood stains from concrete due to their carbonation effect. They can clean toilet bowls, car bumpers and garage floors, too.

Oh, and if you really want to, you can also drink Coke and Pepsi, although that's not advisable unless you really want a stomach full of high-fructose corn syrup and phosphoric acid.

    CHANGE- Let's change the way we eat, the way we live and the way we treat each other. You see the old way wasn't working, so it's on us to do what we gotta do to survive.
