^where do you get this TAB from in the burgh? I haven't seen it b4...


My cousin works at Family Dollar and she got me some. That's the energy drink, mind you. I've never heard of the cola.

you can get it many different places. It all depends on where you live. By me i can pick it up at Krogers,CVS,local gym and im sure there are other places to. At Krogers you can get both the cola and the energy drink for me and same at cvs. At the gym you can only get the energy drink, but rember these places might not work for you.

Hmm.. apparently it contains an artificial sweetener called saccharin that is may be carcinogen. So maybe if it was all you drank everyday, you might get cancer... but what these doesn't contain something that may cause cancer


Just to clarify, carcinogens are only aggravating factors that can promote the development of cancer cells. Actual cancer development depends on several factors, the main ones being:

1. Genetics
2. Immunity

For genetics, you have to have the gene that encodes for the factors necessary for the promotion of a cancer due to a certain carcinogen. Now this sounds ridiculous, but it's the way we are "programmed" in our DNA. That is why some people get lung cancer when they simply inhale 2nd hand smoke, while others smoke like chimneys but don't get lung cancer.

For immunity, there is a protein in our cells called p53 that looks for DNA mutations and errors that may lead to the promotion of cancer cells. If it notices the development of a cancerous cell, it will program that cell it is in to commit suicide (apoptosis). Some carcinogens interfere with this protein, thus relieving the cell of its immunity to commit suicide... therefore, the cancerous cell deveops, and you get cancer.

Sorry for the biology lesson, something I want to clarify. So, yes, you're right in saying that technically everything in this world can give you cancer. as with TaB giving cancer, it's possible, but it's more of a question of the level of toxicity (how probable it is to get cancer from drinking it) the drink has.

never tried the stuff, but I know that cancer is caused by too much mucus causing products, such as milk cigarettes etc..
the cancer sells feed on that mucus. So by having MORE, causes the cancer to grow into harmful cancer.

Everything can cause cancer it seems. Well except maybe broccoli, at least that is what my mother used to tell me.
