A health watchdog group is releasing a study today that found high levels of a cancer-causing chemical in Pepsi drinks in 10 states, including Maryland. The Center for Environmental Health commissioned Eurofins Analytical laboratory in Louisiana to analyze Coke and Pepsi products that were purchased from 10 states. The group said Coca-Cola and PepsiCo had pledged to change their products' caramel coloring as a result of a California law that requires labeling of products with cancer-causing ingredients.

Mentos, soda geysers and the science of nucleation have captured Americans' fancy this summer - if hundreds of goofy, homemade videos posted on the Web are any indication. The formula is simple: Plop a few Mentos candies into a two-liter bottle of soda and behold! A fountain of fizz shoots high into the air - with a force and speed that surprises even grizzled chemists. "I'm not sure one could have predicted it ... that's the serendipity of science," said John P. Toscano, head of the chemistry department at the Johns Hopkins University.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's proposed 5-cent bottle tax can add up quickly. For example, five 12-packs of Diet Coke can be bought on sale for $10. Sixty cans times 5 cents equals $3. Add to that the 6 percent sales tax - 60 cents - and the total becomes $13.60. That's why I think city residents will soon find themselves buying sodas and alcohol in the county. Dave Edington

A recent report on ABC's "Day One" showed that nicotine, the addictive substance in cigarettes, is not simply an unfortunate byproduct of tobacco. Rather, cigarette companies actually control the amount of nicotine in each cigarette. By increasing the dose just a bit, they can turn the screws on the helpless smoker -- increasing his fix and his need for another one.I can't prove it, but I know the folks who make Diet Coke are doing the same thing to me.Diet Coke is not just a harmless bit of effervescence to help spark my taste buds and my day. There is caffeine in there.

Coca-Cola Corp. is trying to revive sales of caffeine-free diet Coke by pitching it to the over-40 caffeine generation.It is the first time that Coke has deviated from a formula that celebrates youth to target an older audience. The move, closely watched in the beverage industry, comes as diet colas are under assault from New Age beverages, ice teas and even water.The strategy, kicked off earlier this year, will get its first big test during the important summer selling season."It is a flat product category and cola companies have to find new ways to sell," said New York beverage industry consultant Tom Pirko.

A ROLE REVERSAL I AM NOT ashamed to admit: my daughter has taken up the badge and gun of the food police. When my children were young, that was my role. I held out longer than most against fast food, and there was a starch, a protein and a vegetable every evening at dinner. However, during all that time, I was an admitted Diet Coke addict. I could barely make it to 11 a.m. before I had my first belt, and that bubbling brown liquid was never far from me after that. I had a Diet Coke in my cup-holder as I drove and in my hand as I walked.

CHICAGO -- It's not unusual for Dee McKinsey to have three cans of Coke before she leaves the house each morning for her job as the regional director of boards and volunteerism at the American Cancer Society in Chicago. "There is nothing better than the feel of Coke on the back of your throat in the morning," said McKinsey, a morning soda drinker since the 1970s. These days, more people are enjoying that chilled morning jolt as they increasingly turn to soft drinks instead of coffee, flouting mom's no soda for breakfast rule many had in their youth.

A nna Sowers has a date at Pazo tonight and another tomorrow morning at the Mitchell Courthouse. If fate had been kinder to the young widow, she'd be dining out with her husband and dreading jury duty. Instead, Sowers is holding a fundraiser from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Pazo to benefit a Hopkins brain trauma research fund named for Zach Sowers, who died last year, 10 months after robbers beat the Patterson Park newlywed into a coma. And Sowers is hoping - against all odds, she knows - she gets picked for a jury.

I just read your column on water. You mention just about everyone - athletes, women, kids, etc. There is no mention of seniors like myself. I'm 80 years old, ride a stationary bike every day and am in good health. How much water should I drink? Your exercise program sounds great, and I'm glad to hear you are in good health. To answer your question, I turned to one of the best sources in the area - Dr. William Greenough, professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Greenough is a specialist in geriatrics, but don't think he's any young know-it-all.

ACCORDING TO a Wall Street Journal report, some Coca-Cola executives are careful to avoid making the sound "uh-huh" while talking to each other.That's because of the fierce advertising competition between Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi.At the moment, the Diet Pepsi commercials appear to be having a greater impact on the hearts and minds and stomachs of the American public.And the phrase "uh-huh" is part of the reason for this success. As any TV viewer knows, the Diet Pepsi commercial stars Ray Charles merrily singing: "You got the right one baby, uh-huh," while a bevy of foxy beauties wiggle and join in on the "uh-huh."

WHEN consumers tasted Diet Rite cola in 1958, and many puckered up at the bitter aftertaste, it began a half-century quest - still continuing - to produce a diet soda that didn't taste like one. America since has landed a man on the moon, corralled the laser for medical use and developed the World Wide Web. But formulating the perfect diet soda is still a work in progress - the latest effort being the Coca-Cola Co.'s launch of Coca-Cola Zero. Diet brands are the fastest-growing segment of the soda market.

DRINKING diet soda might help your waistline, but it won't do any favors for your teeth. Although mineral-rich enamel is the hardest surface in the human body, it's not a match for the old-fashioned American soft drink - including the sugar-free kind. In a study to be published next month, researchers found that the regular and diet versions of popular drinks such as Pepsi and Coke caused the same amount of dental erosion. "I was always convinced that there was going to be a difference in the way diet drinks and regular drinks affect teeth," said J. Anthony von Fraunhofer, professor of biomaterials science at the University of Maryland Dental School and lead author of the study.
