Food for thought

Here's just a quick little tidbit of information for anyone who's interested. Did you know that...in Latin America Coca-Cola products 3x the amount of caffine, and 2x the amount of sugar in all their products. At levels like that, it becomes very addictive. Any extra monies that gov'ts have (namely Mexican) spend money to bring in Multinationals like Coke and its bi-products in, instead of cleaning up the water. So instead of drinking water, people are addicted to coke. They also make Coke a lot cheaper, so even the lower class can afford it. If you think that something is wrong with this picture, feel free to email President Zedillo of Mexico: Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon
