[…]Frank said he has seen research that caffeine can cause spontaneous abortion, psychological abnormalities and other disorders.
“We’re going after people who have problems with addiction for a revenue stream, only caffeine would be one that is more broad-based,” said Frank, who calls himself a “social caffeine drinker.”
That Diet Coke can KILL, people! Also, global warming is fake.
