Simply Orange Lawsuit States: It Isn't All Natural And Causes Cancer!

Why Aren't You hearing About It?

One particular PFA known as PFOA — which the man's lawsuit claims is found in the Simply Tropical drink — is classified as a “possible human carcinogen” because of its potential link to kidney cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute. The testing revealed that a product from Simply Orange — Simply Tropical juice — contained PFAS at 100 times the recommended safe levels, a large group of toxic "forever" chemicals that have the potential to cause harm to human health. Coca-Cola Company alleging that the company falsely markets its “Simply Tropical Juice as all-natural while failing to disclose that they contain high levels of PFAS (per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances).Simply Orange advertises that it is 100% pure-squeezed pasteurized orange juice—everything you love with the addition of calcium and vitamin D alongside the naturally occurring vitamin C.

So far, Simply Orange Juice Company has not taken any step to recall its Simply Tropical juices, as the Coca Cola company claims that they are sure about the authenticity of their products. The company, Simply Orange, is a major buyer of Florida oranges for its orange juice, but also imports orange juice from Brazil and Mexico. Epidemiological studies have revealed associations between exposure to specific PFAS and a variety of health effects, including altered immune and thyroid function, liver disease, lipid and insulin dysregulation, kidney disease, adverse reproductive and developmental outcomes, and cancer. many are saying this accusation if true is very similar to the findings found to be true about substances secretly put in black hair care products that also cause birth defects and inability to give birth!

Some PFAS leave the body slowly over time, mostly through urine. People who have kidney disease may not excrete as much PFAS from their body through their urine as healthy individuals. Some PFAS routinely leave the body in blood during menstruation. Research has also shown that PFAS contamination in the environment where food is grown or produced does not necessarily mean the food will contain detectable levels of PFAS. This is because the amount of PFAS taken up by foods depends on many factors, including the specific type of PFAS and type of food.

Exposure to certain types PFAS have been linked to serious health effects, including but not limited to, increased cholesterol levels, increases in high-blood pressure and pre-eclampsia in pregnant women, developmental effects, decreases in immune response, changes in liver function, and increases in certain types of cancer. Most of the research on PFAS and health effects is based on two types of PFAS, perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). There are, however, thousands of PFAS chemicals, hundreds of which are used in a wide range of industrial and consumer products with very different chemical structures and chemical and physical properties. The associated health effects for most of these different PFAS are unknown.
