Mountain Dew & Pepsi Co. are being sued, because experts found that it can dissolve a mouse carcass into ooze! What's it doing to your stomac
[link to www.mail.com]

January 05, 2012 — In legal proceedings in Illinois, experts found that the neon-yellow soft drink could break down a mouse carcass.

Pepsi Co. has found itself in a lose-lose situation. On the one hand, an Illinois man has filed suit over an alleged mouse he discovered in a can of Mountain Dew. On the other, Pepsi’s legal team has argued that this isn’t even possible, because the neon-yellow beverage would have dissolved the rodent into a “jelly-like substance,” reports LegalNewsline. Pick your poison.

The case began in 2009, when Ronald Ball claims he bought a can of Mountain Dew from a vending machine in Illinois. The drink left a foul taste in his mouth, so he spit it out, revealing a dead mouse inside. Disgusted, he put the mouse in a Styrofoam cup and showed it to his coworkers, before taking action. “He immediately called Pepsi,” Ball’s attorney, Samantha Unsell, told ABC News.

Pepsi had a veterinary pathologist examine the carcass, but the expert concluded that the mouse couldn’t have been in a can of Mountain Dew from the time it was bottled in August 2008; the acids in the drink would have turned it into ooze long before Ball opened the can in November 2009, according to LegalNewsline.

Ball claims that Pepsi then destroyed the specimen, so he is now seeking $50,000 in damages. The case has been ongoing, but some of the strange details came out last week when Pepsi Co. requested an extension to prepare a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, according to the New York Daily News. In a court of law, no one likes to be proven wrong. But in this case, Pepsi Co. could have been better off just backing down.

I'm pretty sure this would happen if the mouse would be in water for that long.

Now anyone with any sense knows acid will make it faster and the stuff contains at least citric acid and probably a lot more chemicals.

Not sure why this is a big deal.

It's the ACID in ALL soft drinks ( CO2 + H20 yields H2CO3, carbonic acid ) and THAT is what EATS the enamel OFF your teeth ! PLUS, the 10-12 teaspoons of sugar in each can supply the bacteria with food, and THEN THEY produce acid waste that continues the same ACTION !

Doesn't take a minor in Chemistry to know this, but it helps, lol !

Stomach acid is stronger than any soft drink. And the stomach produces mucus constantly or it would digest itself. Now soft drinks will make the body acid(like too much sugar, meat, carbs) but it won't hurt the stomach. The only thing bad about soft drinks is the high fructose corn syrup and the aspartame they put in the diet sodas. If you can get soda made with plain old sugar that is not bad to drink once in a while.
