Brominated vegetable oil

Brominated vegetable oil makes food dye stick to liquid, but also may cause birth defects and major organ damage.

You can find it in sports drinks and citrus-flavored sodas.   I love Mountain Dew, like you would not believe. It was so sad to find this out.

Bromine is a chemical used to stop carpets from catching on fire, so you can see why drinking it may not be the best idea. BVO is linked to major organ system damage, birth defects, growth problems, schizophrenia, and hearing loss.   
Over 100 countries have banned it from use in foods, but not the US.
