The Center for Science and Environment in New Delhi recently found that the pesticide levels in Pepsi and Coke drinks were more than 36 times higher than the limit set by the European Economic Commission! In some instances, Indian farmers have actually started spraying Coca Cola on their crops instead of paying high prices for patented fertilizers. Other uses of Coke include cleaning toilet bowls and removing rust.
Before 1906, the popular soft drink contained traces of cocaine. It was initially sold as a patent medicine, which was used to cure a variety of ailments starting from headaches to impotence.
