Pepsi Rumors? True o False?

Henry Tan | 9:48 PM | |
I believe recently most of you have seen the rumors of Pepsi.
Which is something like this...




` Dear all , plz do not drink any drink which produced from pepsi company. 

Such as pepsi, tropicana juice, 7up, slide, coca cola and etc. Due to one of the worker from the company has added his blood contaminated with HIV. May refer to news at NDTV. 



Please forward to person u care :)


But... After some search in the internet...
Let me show you what I found...

1. No such news in NDTV.

2. Truth about HIV Transmission.
According to Centre for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC)...

HIV does not live long outside the body. Even if small amounts of HIV-infected blood or semen was consumed, exposure to the air, heat from cooking, and stomach acid would destroy the virus. Therefore, there is no risk of contracting HIV from eating food.

3. Just a prank circulation rumors.
According to urbanlegends.about.com...

Different versions of the same rumor have made the rounds before, in 2004 and 2007-08. In those previous cases the food products allegedly contaminated with HIV-positive blood were ketchup and tomato sauce, but the status of the rumor was the same: false.

Conclusion?
It's totally absurd!
So I would like to use the famous word from MythBusters.


It is sad that people misuses social networking.
But who to blame?

People who share it or people who create it?

People whom share it...

"Being caring or pure naive?"

Well, that leaves to you to decide.
But one thing for sure...

Be smart next time, 
ask google to find out the truth first! =D

Always remember...
