  • Brominated Vegetable oil, that’s a big one most people have never even heard of. They use it a lot in sodapops because it helps the flavor molecules stay dispersed properly in the beverage. What they don’t tell you, is that bromine is toxic in any significant quantity. You can actually drink enough soda in a day (if you really wanted to) to experience bromine poisoning symptoms.
