Drink Ingredient Gets a Look - Yahoo! Finance

The kid is 15 years old, overweight, and vegetarian. She is petitioning PepsiCo because it has brominated vegetable oil in gatorade. While this stuff IS junk, honestly(and I'm really not trying to be mean towards a 15 year old kid) shouldn't she be worried about the massive amount of sugar that is in this and the load she is putting on her pancreas among the rest of the large list of crap that is in there?

Thoughts?
