Half of fast food soda drinks contain fecal bacteria...

Researchers at Hollins University in Roanoke, VA have found that 48 percent of the fast food soda fountain drinkss they tested contain coliform bacteria, which is fecal in origin, and that it's drug resistant.  Smaller percentages contained other bacteria such as E. coli and staphylococcus, which were also drug resistant.  Although it's been ten years since anyone was dangerously sick from fountain bacteria, it still can cause stomach discomfort which isn't reported.
