A side of fries with a burger is a must. But countries like Japan depend on U.S. growers for most of the frozen potatoes that are made into fries and sold in big chains — and a dwindling potato stock has put fast-food chains in deep trouble.

Burger King, which operates more than 150 restaurants in Japan, has found a way around the shortage. Until new supplies finally arrive, customers are urged to swap the fries for something Japan has no shortage of: ramen noodles.

Customers in Japan can have a side of crunchy ramen with their burgers instead of fries

CBS News


Burger King calls it “the almost potato set,” which includes a burger and a side of crispy ramen noodles. The noodles are good and salty, but not the same.

Customers in Japan told CBS News’ Lucy Craft that ramen can’t be a permanent fix.

“I would be sad without fries,” one person said. “I always get fries with my burger.”

“If Burger King only had crunchy ramen, I might go to McDonald’s,” said another.

Burger King said its unusual offerings have won it a devoted fan base, adding that many have given up the fries as a show of loyalty. The chain has also considered replacing fries with options like grilled squid, apple pie and even boiled ramen.

Burger King isn’t the only fast-food chain struggling with potato shortages. Last winter, rival McDonald’s was forced to ration fries and potato nuggets for nearly a month.

Takeda and Nintendo Among Japanese Companies Quietly Celebrate Yen Weakness https://nsms10.com/takeda-and-nintendo-among-japanese-companies-quietly-celebrate-yen-weakness/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 05:47:00 +0000 https://nsms10.com/takeda-and-nintendo-among-japanese-companies-quietly-celebrate-yen-weakness/ TOKYO, June 17 (Reuters) – The Japanese yen is at its weakest level in decades and is inflicting high costs of imported food and fuel on households and businesses, but is also proving to be an unexpected tailwind for multinationals such as the pharmaceutical giant Takeda.

TOKYO, June 17 (Reuters) – The Japanese yen is at its weakest level in decades and is inflicting high costs of imported food and fuel on households and businesses, but is also proving to be an unexpected tailwind for multinationals such as the pharmaceutical giant Takeda.

As the Bank of Japan reiterated its commitment to an accommodative monetary policy on Friday, asserting its position as a dove in a global environment of rising inflation, the yen retreated to lows of 135.60 to the dollar. he had achieved this week. It is down 14% against the US dollar this year. Read more

Households complained about the effect on their wallets. Nearly half of companies responding to a Tokyo Shoko Research survey this week said a weak yen would negatively impact their business. Only 3% said it would be a good thing.

Still, many companies’ forecasts for the current fiscal year are based on assumptions that the currency will be 15 to 20 yen stronger against the US dollar than current levels. This means that those with a lot of overseas business and lower dollar debt should increase their income simply by hitting their existing goals.

For Takeda Pharmaceutical Co (4502.T), Japan’s biggest drugmaker, a weaker yen helps because 80% of its sales are overseas, chief financial officer Costa Saroukos said. Takeda had made its projections on the basis of the yen at 119 to the dollar.

“Assuming exchange rates stay where they were in April and May, with the dollar at around 130 yen, we will have a high single-digit percentage upside from what we gave in our revenue forecast and profit,” Saroukos said this week.

Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T), Panasonic Corp (6752.T) and Nintendo Co (7974.T) were also cautious, expecting the yen to be at 115 against the dollar by March 2023.

Sony Group Corp (6758.T) has one of the weakest yen projections, 123 to the dollar – but that’s still a far cry from current levels, which haven’t been seen since 1998.

Nintendo, a Kyoto-based video game maker, released its full-year earnings forecast last month, assuming the dollar-yen would be at 115 by March 2023, the end of its fiscal year. Chairman Shuntaro Furakawa told investors at the time that a change of one yen from that rate would lead to a 6.3 billion yen ($47 million) increase in US revenue alone if sales were flat. .

Fujio Mitarai, president of camera maker Canon, said the drop in the currency’s value could be “a very big plus” for the company. He made the comment after Canon released forecasts based on an expected rate of 120 yen to the dollar.

But Mitarai warned that this would depend on avoiding extreme increases in component prices or slowdowns in production. He cited downside risks that were “moving violently and difficult to predict.”

Some Japanese companies that could benefit from the exchange rate are experiencing complications that limit the upside.

Koji Shibata, CEO of airline ANA Holdings Inc (9202.T), said April 28 that the weak yen was “a big opportunity for visitors to Japan” but called current limits on foreign arrivals a “waste”.

MIXED BLESSING

Nintendo makes most of its profits from high-margin software, so it should benefit from overseas sales made in relatively stronger currencies.

But other Japanese companies, which depend on their own manufacturing, are facing reduced purchasing power for components and materials due to the weak yen.

And after years of strengthening overseas production and supply chains, many manufacturers now see less benefit from a weaker currency than they did years ago. Read more

Conveyor belt sushi restaurant operator Sushiro said last month that its iconic 100-yen plates would end in October after nearly 40 years, a victim of a weak yen and rising production costs.

Asahi Group Holdings (2502.T) said in April it would raise the price of its market-leading Super Dry canned beer for the first time in 14 years. Competitors Kirin Holdings Co (2503.T), Suntory Beverage & Food Ltd (2587.T) and Sapporo Holdings Inc (2501.T) followed suit by announcing price hikes.

Researcher Teikoku Databank said this month that prices for more than 10,000 food items in Japan will rise in 2022.

“We import a lot, so the impact of the weaker yen is significant,” Toru Sakamoto, chief executive of seafood producer Maruha Nichiro Corp (1333.T) said last month.

“Costs are rising due to a shortage of containers and rising fuel prices. We are doing everything to reduce production costs, but at this point we have no choice but to pass it on to our price.”

Tadashi Yanai, Japan’s richest person and CEO of parent company Uniqlo Fast Retailing Co (9983.T), believes there is “absolutely no merit” in a weaker yen.

“Japan is in the business of importing raw materials from all over the world, processing them, adding value to them and selling them,” he said in April. “In this context, there is no benefit if the value of a country’s currency weakens.”

Takeshi Hashimoto, CEO of transportation giant Mitsui OSK Lines (9104.T), said in April that his company’s profits were rising due to the weak yen.

“However, I don’t think that’s our real strength, and I don’t think we should be happy or sad about profits going up or down because of it.”

Craving a slice of old Portland? Two Diners have been serving the same charm for breakfast for about 70 years. The original creperie, a third-generation family business not to be confused with the Original Hotcake House. It opened in 1953 in Southwest Barbur (8601 SW 24th Ave) and has since grown into a franchise chain with over 100 restaurants in the United States, as well as Japan and South Korea. Stepping into the welcoming restaurant feels like stepping into a small town in America. Memorial plaques line the walls, and waiters wear candy-pink aprons. On the menu: pancakes of all kinds, from plate-sized flapjacks, to baby egg Dutchman with a pool of butter, to Swedish lingonberry lace pancakes, as well as the usual breakfast suspects, including including omelettes and waffles.

From this dizzying pile, we recommend the signature apple crepe, a tall, dwarf plate number generously topped with tart apple slices and Sinkiang cinnamon-flavored glaze – think apple pie for breakfast – and the oozing continental pancakes triple sec-laced sour cream, accompanied by a small pitcher of tangy orange-lemon sauce. The bacon is thick and crispy, and the hash browns are an unexpected treat: hand-shredded potatoes in ribbons much wider than your usual frozen entrees, cooked to a buttery crunch with lots of onion.




Meanwhile, Fuller’s Coffeeopened in 1947 by Jack Fuller, has sat in his current Pearl District digs (136 NW Ninth Ave) since 1960. His son John then took over, working most days until he was 79, when he sold the business to Urban Restaurant Group, which also owns Taverne Brix. Long before that was “the Pearl”, remembers John, the neighborhood was mainly warehouses. And when Fuller’s weekend breakfast first launched — no one called it brunch — business was excruciatingly slow.

Now almost all red-orange leather and chrome Formica counter stool is busy. Millennials are typing Slack messages on their phones while enjoying old-fashioned cookies and gravy. older gentlemen in woolen caps and silk ties start their day with omelettes and toast. Tourists try a $4.75 special that includes a pancake, two strips of bacon and an egg – a steal from the Pearl, though an old menu on the wall reminds you that three buns and a coffee once cost 40 cents. When John launched this special in the 90s, it was $1.99. At this price, don’t expect the best pancakes of your life, but what they lack in taste, their surroundings make up for in time travel.

In a court in western Japan last month Susumu Tomizawa, 88, admitted to killing his granddaughter Tomomi, 16, almost two years ago – but, he said, he does not remember doing it .

Tomizawa has Alzheimer’s disease, a progressive and irreversible neurological disease that destroys neurons and shrinks regions of the brain. In court, his lawyers argued that he should not be held criminally responsible because his illness causes dementia, a condition marked by multiple cognitive deficits such as memory loss.

“He was insane at the time due to dementia and alcohol consumption…and therefore pleaded not guilty,” they said.

But the Fukui City Court disagreed.

On May 31, Tomizawa was sentenced to four and a half years in prison for murder.

The case shocked many people in Japan, an aging country where the number of elderly patients with dementia is on the rise.

The trial, broadcast live from the court, was closely watched and drew sympathy from many who expressed pity for Tomizawa and the family’s loss of Tomomi.

Stabbed to death

Tomizawa and Tomomi lived at his home in Fukui City, the court heard.

On the night of September 9, 2020, they had a fight and resulted in the teen’s death.

Tomizawa remembers drinking a lot that night. Upset and inebriated, he took a 17 centimeter (nearly 7 inch) long kitchen knife and entered Tomomi’s room, where he repeatedly stabbed her in the neck, learned the court last month.

The alarm was raised when Tomizawa called his eldest son, saying he had found Tomomi’s bloody body, the court heard. The police arrived at the scene soon after and arrested the old man.

Tomizawa’s mental state was at the center of his trial as doctors, lawyers and judges debated whether or not he knowingly killed his granddaughter.

Doctors who assessed his condition insisted he had a motive to commit murder. “His actions were deliberate and consistent with his intent to kill,” forensic psychiatrist Hiroki Nakagawa told the court.

Prosecutors said the elderly man was able to control his actions and “possessed the ability to judge right and wrong”, despite his illness.

In its ruling, the court recognized Tomizawa’s Alzheimer’s disease, but said it understood the weight of his actions. “After careful consideration and consultation with the defendant, we [made] careful judgment,” Judge Yoshinobu Kawamura said.

“The accused was in a state of mental exhaustion at the time of the crime and he had great difficulty in judging right or wrong or in deterring himself from committing the crime – but he was not in a state where he was unable to do so.”

disease of the mind

According to experts, Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia in the elderly.

“It’s a degenerative brain disease,” said Jason Frizzell, a psychologist who specializes in criminal cases. “In virtually all cases, there is a gradual decline in a person’s abilities over time.”

The disease attacks the brain and memory loss worsens as it progresses. Symptoms like paranoia, agitation, confusion and even violent outbursts are likely to occur, said Frizzell, who is also a professor at Arizona State University.

“Of course, not all patients will [display] the same set of symptoms. Situational context can also play a role in aggression — whether a patient is afraid of places or people they don’t recognize,” he said.

Alzheimer's disease facts

Jacob Rajesh, senior forensic psychiatrist at Promises Healthcare in Singapore, said that in cases of rapidly progressing Alzheimer’s disease “it will be difficult to provide an accurate account of what actually happened. “.

“There is also the issue of fitness to stand trial – is a person fit enough to testify on the stand and plead guilty or not guilty?” he said.

Crimes involving dementia patients are also extremely complex, experts said.

“How much of their conduct can we reasonably explain by illness itself as opposed to other motivations such as anger or revenge,” Frizzell said. He also emphasized moral and ethical value judgments.

“How can we effectively or reasonably prosecute someone who might be completely debilitated by their disease in a few more years? Does compassion for a convicted person with dementia conflict with the perception of justice by the community?”

“Prisons full of elderly inmates”

Japan has one of the largest elderly populations in the world. More than 20% of its residents are over 65, according to government records, and the number of Japanese centenarians is on the rise.

Dementia mainly affects older people and it is believed that there are more than 4.6 million people in Japan living with the disease. Experts say the number will rise dramatically as the country continues to age rapidly.

Violent crimes committed by Japanese dementia patients are rare, but a case similar to Tomizawa’s in 2014 saw a 72-year-old man with dementia strangle an 82-year-old woman to death in a hospice. He received a reduced prison sentence of three years due to his condition.

A record one in 1,500 people in Japan is at least 100 years old - and that's likely to be a woman

“Japan’s prisons are full of elderly inmates suffering from dementia,” said Koichi Hamai, a criminal justice expert and professor of law at Ryukoku University in Kyoto. “The number of elderly prisoners is increasing and we need to take various measures to [address it].”

Tomomi had lived with her grandfather in Fukui, one of Japan’s least populated prefectures and where about one in three residents are over 65, according to government figures.

Details of their lives were scarce, but observers pointed to issues such as aggression and domestic violence that Alzheimer’s patients and their frustrated caregivers often faced.

“Patients with dementia are known to act against the people who care for them, those closest to them,” said Rajesh, the forensic psychiatrist.

“The patients [like Tomizawa] needed a lot of supervision and management to be home, and it wasn’t immediately obvious that he had any.”

CNN’s Emiko Jozuka and Kathleen Benoza contributed reporting.

Japan: what explains the decline in life expectancy for Okinawans? | Asia | An in-depth look at news from across the continent | DW https://nsms10.com/japan-what-explains-the-decline-in-life-expectancy-for-okinawans-asia-an-in-depth-look-at-news-from-across-the-continent-dw/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 12:13:08 +0000 https://nsms10.com/japan-what-explains-the-decline-in-life-expectancy-for-okinawans-asia-an-in-depth-look-at-news-from-across-the-continent-dw/ For generations, the people of Okinawa Prefecture in Japan have enjoyed the reputation of being among the longest-lived humans on the planet.

For generations, the people of Okinawa Prefecture in Japan have enjoyed the reputation of being among the longest-lived humans on the planet.

Medical experts and gerontologists flocked to these semi-tropical islands off southern Japan in search of the secret to the locals’ longevity, with most concluding that it was a combination of a diet nutritious food, regular exercise and support from family and the wider community.

Today, however, that is changing. And while the wider Japanese population is living longer than ever, Okinawans are starting to die earlier. And the blame is pinned on the younger generations who are turning their backs on the old way of life in the islands.

In 1980, Okinawa had the highest average life expectancy for both males and females, with males generally expected to reach at least 84 and females up to 90.

Life expectancy is decreasing

But that enviable record began to slip. In 1990, the average male life expectancy in Okinawa was only the fifth highest of Japan’s 47 prefectures, and by 2020 it had fallen to 36th on the list. Okinawan women topped the prefectural list until 2005, but fell to seventh place in 2020.

In the 2020 census, conducted by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, Okinawan men lived to an average age of 80.27 years and women 87.44 years.

Makoto Suzuki takes a keen interest in the subject; he is 89 years old and has studied the reasons for the longevity of his fellow islanders all his life.

“Okinawa people’s life expectancy is declining quite rapidly and we think the problem is that young people haven’t followed in the footsteps of previous generations,” said Suzuki, who still works part-time as a cardiologist. clinic and is co-founder of the Naha-based Okinawa Research Center for Longevity Sciences.

“Okinawa people have been influenced by the food and lifestyle choices of other societies, especially that of the United States,” he told DW.

Since Japan’s surrender at the end of World War II in 1945, Okinawa has been home to a large number of American military bases and tens of thousands of soldiers. A culture of fast food and television rather than physical exercise has rubbed off on the local population, he said, and the results are now visible.

“Generally, the Okinawan diet included lots of vegetables, local fruits, dishes such as ‘tofu’, fish and meat, albeit in small portions,” he said. , adding: “When I was little, we ate meat about once a week. and it’s a habit that I have kept to this day.”

“When I was younger, I also did a lot of walking, climbing and archery, but I don’t do that much now, mainly because I don’t have time for those hobbies.

The importance of ikegami

“I also believe that the concept of ‘ikegai’ is important to our lives, especially among older people,” Suzuki said, referring to the traditional idea of ​​a person’s reason for living.

“My work at the hospital is very busy and it’s my ikegai,” he said. “It is important for me to help sick people and I don’t consider them as my patients, I consider them as my friends. But being with them also helps me because isolation and loneliness are very dangerous for people. elderly.

“My wife died two years ago, so now I often go to the hospital at night to be with other people because my friends are there.”

Tomoko Owan, an associate professor at the Ryukyus University School of Medicine, agrees that outside influences have had a negative impact on the well-being of the islanders.

“Okinawa is known to be a place where people live well into old age, but that started to change in the years after the war,” she said. “People from overseas moved here and they brought their own culture with them. Slowly the local people mixed with these newcomers and our diet and traditions changed.”

Food is one big thing that has changed, she says, but there are others.

karate lessons

“It was an island society where family and community were always very important,” she said. “It was peaceful and in the past people had little stress.”

A rural backwater in years gone by, many Okinawans have recently embraced the “hurry up” approach to life that is more associated with mainland Japanese, Owan pointed out, while increasing work commitments mean that ‘there’s less time for relaxation, for friends and family, and for a person’s hobbies.

Karate is closely associated with Okinawa, and to this day many older Okinawa residents practice this martial art. Owan herself teaches karate at her university and says it’s an indispensable part of her daily exercise routine. It is, she stresses, a workout for body, mind and soul.

Still, Okinawan’s younger generations seem content with their current lifestyle, even if that means they’re unlikely to live as long as their grandparents.

“It’s the modern Japanese lifestyle,” said Shuhei Kohagura, a 39-year-old official with the prefectural tourism agency, admitting he does a lot of overtime at work every week, eats a snack to a local convenience store for lunch and after-work drinking with co-workers.

“I grew up with this lifestyle, so it’s comfortable for me now, although I complain about being too busy most of the time,” he said. “The traditional way of life here may seem attractive, but I think it would be very difficult for me to adapt to it, as it is so different from anything I have become accustomed to.”

Pointing out that his own mother lived to be 105, Suzuki stressed that he intended to continue working as a doctor for as long as possible.

“I think young people in Okinawa haven’t learned from their elders,” he said. “It’s unfortunate because they don’t live that long, but our society has undergone serious changes in a short time.”

Soda is synonymous with America. After all, Coca-Cola essentially created the modern representation of Santa Claus. Ironically, however, large parts of the country don’t even call it “soda.”

Flavored soft drinks of all kinds are usually called “cola” in Southern states, while it’s common to call soda “pop” in Midwestern regions. Whatever its name, soda has been an integral part of the American diet for decades.

While soda consumption statistics in the United States have been declining in recent years, in 2018 the average American still drank an absolutely staggering 38.87 gallons of soda during the calendar year. That’s a lot of pop.

It’s no secret that America has an obesity problem. It is estimated that more than 41% of American adults are obese, and soda is a major contributor to this statistic. The vast majority of non-diet sodas available on store shelves today are filled with way too much sugar, caffeine, and empty calories.

“Healthy adults should aim to consume less than 50 grams of total added sugar per day and less than 300 milligrams of total caffeine per day (less than 200 milligrams if you’re pregnant). Unfortunately, most Regular sodas have about 40 grams of added sugar per 12-ounce can,” says registered dietitian Molly Hembree.

It should be noted that the habitual consumption of sodas can cause problems far beyond your waistline. There is no shortage of scientific research linking soda to other major health issues. This study, published in the British Medical Journal, reports that sugary drinks may increase the risk of cancer. Meanwhile, this project published in Stroke points to a link between diet sodas and dementia.

A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine really cuts to the chase, finding that the consumption of artificially sweetened and sweetened beverages is associated with an increased risk of all-cause mortality. In other words, if you drink a lot of soda, you’re more likely to die.

The thing is, if you’re looking for a healthy drink, you probably shouldn’t be walking down the soda aisle at all. That being said, some brands of soda are worse than others, and we’re not just talking about sugar or calories.

“Many sodas contain added synthetic colorants, preservatives for flavor and color, and flavor enhancers, which are not helpful to our health but provide a function to make the quality of these beverages consistent,” adds Hembree.

Read on to learn more about the soda brands you should avoid right now!

And don’t miss The Verdict on the Worst Sodas You Can Drink, Straight From Dietitians.

Did you know that long before soda commandeered the name, “Mountain Dew” was a nickname for moonshine? Mountain Dew’s soda version may be healthier than moonshine, but that’s hardly a feat.

From the outset, Mountain Dew stands out from other sodas with its fluorescent yellow/green color. This soda looks anything but natural, and that’s because it isn’t. Mountain Dew gets its almost electric coloring from a food coloring called tartrazine, or yellow 5. to be nothing more than an urban legend.

Yet, there are a number of real issues with yellow 5. It has been linked to multiple issues of concern in children; from hyperactivity to eczema. Tartrazine has also shown carcinogenic properties. Products containing Yellow 5 must include a warning label in the European Union, and Norway and Austria have even banned the ingredient altogether.

Mountain Dew claims the top spot on this list for another stomach-ache reason: it’s acidic enough to dissolve a mouse’s entire body. How the hell do we know that? Well, Pepsi (the producer of Mountain Dew) used that statement as a legal defense. In 2009, a man sued Pepsi after he claimed he discovered a mouse carcass in his can of Mountain Dew.

In response, Pepsi claimed that this could never have happened because “the mouse would have dissolved in the soda if it had been in the can from the time it was bottled until the day the plaintiff bottled it. drank”. The lawsuit was eventually settled out of court.

Mountain Dew has an acid pH level of 3, which is just two levels lower than literal battery acid (pH 1).

Pibb Xtra has gone through a number of makeovers and name changes over the decades (Mr. Pibb, anyone?), but many unhealthy components have remained consistent.

Pibb Xtra contains a number of concerning ingredients linked to a myriad of health issues, like potassium benzoate and caramel coloring, but to be fair, tons of sodas contain these ingredients.

One ingredient, however, in Pibb Xtra stands out: polyethylene glycol. It is the same main ingredient found in Miralax laxative.

The classic Pepsi flavor may be enjoyed by many, but that doesn’t mean it’s particularly good for you.

Besides the obvious problems associated with caffeine, sugar, and too much high fructose corn syrup, Pepsi contains phosphoric acid. Why is it worth mentioning? Phosphoric acid is commonly used in rust removers and a number of household cleaning products.

Pepsi also contains caramel coloring, which has been linked to cancer, high blood pressure, and even a low white blood cell count. The state of California even declared 4-MEL (a caramel coloring by-product) a carcinogen a decade ago.

On a particularly bizarre note, Pepsi (and a few other sodas) was once used as a pesticide by farmers in India. Before you go call the poison control center, keep in mind that all the sugar in Pepsi was likely attracting nearby insects that killed even smaller larvae that damaged farmers’ crops. However, the terms pesticide and soft drink should never go hand in hand.

While there are plenty of nutritional reasons to avoid Coca-Cola, the world’s most recognizable soda brand makes it onto this list for a reason unrelated to nutrition or ingredients.

A Boston University survey published in The American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that Coca-Cola and Pepsi sponsored nearly 100 national health organizations between 2011 and 2015. Coke also spent six million dollars on lobbying efforts between 2011 and 2014 (Pepsi spent $3 million). Additionally, Coke and Pepsi have lobbied against at least 28 different public health bills focused on reducing public soda consumption and/or improving nutrition.

A total of 96 health organizations took money from Coke or Pepsi during the study period, including 83 from Coca-Cola alone.

“Soda companies can neutralize possible legislative opposition by invoking reciprocity and financial dependence on national health organizations,” said the study’s lead author, Daniel Aaron, in a press release. “Rather than supporting public health, organizations may become unwitting partners in a corporate marketing strategy that undermines public health.”

Additionally, Coca-Cola was sued in the fall of 2020 for its plastic pollution by the Earth Island Institute and the Plastic Pollution Coalition. Break Free From Plastic also named Coca-Cola the biggest plastic polluter on the planet in 2019.

Like many other soda brands, Sun Drop contains sodium benzoate, another preservative that has been shown to have serious carcinogenic properties, immune system-weakening tendencies, and a penchant for promoting hyperactivity in teens. .

But that’s not all: Sun Drop also contains brominated vegetable oil (BVO). The BVO acts as an emulsifier, ensuring that the soda ingredients stay well mixed. So what’s the problem ? Well, for starters, BVO is banned as a food additive in much of the world (Europe, Japan) – but not in the good old USA!

This synthetic chemical is woefully understudied, so we’re only scratching the surface of its potential impact on human health. That said, one of its main ingredients (bromine) has been linked to a plethora of frightening health issues like headaches, skin problems, and even memory loss. What we do know is that ingesting BVO results in persistent residues in body fat found in the brain, liver, and other organs.

You would have to drink more than two liters of soda containing BVO per day to be at serious risk of bromine buildup in your body, but the point still stands.

BVO was actually much more common in sodas. Around 2013-2014, Coca-Cola and Pepsi pledged to remove BVO from all their drinks (but it took until 2020 for the ingredient to finally be removed from Mountain Dew).
