Seriously?  If someone started pumping Coca-Cola into the ground and
contaminating public waters, then yes - I'd demand to know the secret
recipe.  Unless they've suddenly stopped putting HFCS in there, I'd
argue they're still putting addictive poisons in it.

I also don't care if the water is only slightly polluted to the tune
of "You'd have to really drink a lot of it, wash your clothes in it
and bath in it every day for it to even amount to anything over years
of exposure."  Believe it or not, people DO this.  You can call me a
non-scientist - I won't take any offense.  I have been around for a
while though; I've seen things.  Maybe you have too?
