Lets do the math :

355ml = 39g, 500ml=65g, 1L=108g, 2L = 216g

So how much exactly is a gram of sugar? One teaspoon of granulated sugar equals 4 grams of sugar. give or take.

So in a normal 355ml of coke you get 10 teaspoons of sugar. In a 500ml you get 16. In a 1L you get 27 Teaspoons and in a 2L you get 54

This baby also has 54 Teaspoons per 1L ( In terms of market share, Red Bull is the most popular energy drink in the world, with 5.387 billion cans sold in 2013) (27g per 250ml or 7 spoons )thats 7 spoons x 5000,000,000 (we will drop the 387 million) = 35,000,000,000  thats 35 billion spoons of sugar per year, excluding the 387 million other cans. .  I left out the 387 million cans to allow for the sugar free one (which contains aspartame, which is genetically modified e-coli bacteria excrement)

oh thats 140,000,000,000g or140 billion grams = 154,324 tons of sugar

Monsanto Exposed

Screen Shot 2014-04-13 at 1.55.24 AM

A Brief and incomplete list of some products/services/start ups by Monsanto, the largest Bio tech agricultural company in the world. (references are in parentheses after each product, and we urge you to read them as there is a wealth of other knowledge to be gleaned)

The company’s first product was the artificial sweetener saccharin and later aspartame (NutraSweet) Sold to Coca- Cola (1,2,3)

  • Aspirin (Largest Producer up to 1980) (3)
  • Sulphuric acid. (3)
  • Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB’s) (3)
  • Assisted in the development of the first nuclear weapons. (2,3,4)
  • “All” laundry detergent (2)
  • Polyurethanes (2)
  • DDT (2)
  • Agent Orange (2)
  • L‑dopa, which is currently the main drug used to treat (unsuccessfully) Parkinson’s disease. (2)
  • Acetic acid (diluted acetic acid is often used in descaling agents) alsoin vinegar. (2)
  • Astro Turf (2)
  • The first company to start mass production of (visible) light emitting diodes (LEDs), using gallium arsenide phosphide (2)
  • Monsanto scientists became the first to modify a plant cell in 1982. (2)
  • Monsanto conducted the first field tests of genetically engineered crops. (2)
  • Celecoxib (with a list of disastrous side effects) (2)
  • Bovine somatotropin (artificial growth hormone for cows) (2)
  • Generated the first transgenic varieties of cotton, soybeans, peanuts,maize seed (2)
  • Flavr Savr tomato (the first commercially grown genetically engineered food to be granted a license for human consumption.) (2)
  • Monsanto Choice Genetics (GM Pigs) (2)
  • Glyphosate herbicides( kills grass and weeds) (2)
  • Genetic use restriction technology AKA Terminator technology ( prevents plants from reseeding forcing farmers to purchase new seeds every season) (2,3,4)
  • Monsanto sued the Pilot Grove Cooperative Elevator in Pilot Grove, Missouri, on the grounds that by cleaning harvested seeds covered by Monsanto’s patents so that farmers could replant them. (2)
  • Hires Blackwater (worlds largest mercenary army) they did the dirty for the USA in Iraq and Iran (1,2,3,4,5,6)
  • Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) This genetically modified hormone was developed by Monsanto to be injected into dairy cows to produce more milk. (2,3)
  • Roundup. Worlds top selling herbicide (2,3)
  • Dioxin. Chemical pesticides (2,3)

As you can see there are a large amount of products in this small list that are and have been banned AND are responsible for hundreds of thousands of human fatalities, not counting the animal and plant population genocide they practice.

Is this a company you would trust with YOUR food?

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Do yourself a favor and Google some of the products, if that does not convince you to go organic then you must be an employee of them or hold shares . . .

P.S
Why would a “food” company hire the worlds largest mercenary army?
