OMG Flame retardant in Gatorade??? How insane is that ??? Well that’s what I found out when https://www.change.org sent me an alert via my email. BTW this is a great website to sign up to and stay informed and on top of any subjects that matters to you. You can even create your own petition and post it it on Face book and other sharing medias.

BVO is banned in Europe and Japan, but in the U.S. it’s patented by many chemical companies as a flame retardant–and it’s used in some fruit-flavored drinks, like Gatorade Orange.
