Sodium Benzoate, Adam, and Eve.

By now you’ve probably seen the news about the dangers of sodium benzoate (a chemical commonly found in diet cola.)

The fear mongering ranges from cancer causing to DNA damaging. But is it legit?

Personally, I think it’s all bullshit. If you look closely you’ll see that the amount of sodium benzoate in an apple is far higher than the FDA approved amount in cola.

Are they suggesting that we stop eating apples?

Maybe that’s why God forbid Adam and Eve to eat the apples from tree of knowledge (which probably weren’t even apples but pomegranates)
