7UP Being Sued Over Antioxidant Claim

So, have you seen that Cherry 7UP? Have you noticed how the label says it has antioxidants?

Well, it's tricking you into thinking it's healthy, of course. Why not? Why not lie to consumers just to make more money? Morals are dumb!

The soda's maker, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, is getting sued for making false health claims — because the drinks contain not a single drop of fruit juice and only a "small amount" of added vitamin E. That vitamin E has no antioxidant qualities.

Here's what the lawsuit is arguing:

"Nondiet varieties of 7UP, like other sugary drinks, promote obesity, diabetes, tooth decay, and other serious health problems, and no amount of antioxidants could begin to reduce those risks. Adding an antioxidant to a soda is like adding menthol to a cigarette — neither does anything to make an unhealthy product healthy."

When the hell will food companies be held accountable for tricking their customers and serving awful stuff??

There needs to be major food industry reform in this country!
