A judge in Lagos, Nigeria  has ruled that a popular soft drink should be avoided by Nigerians as it is harmful to their health. According to the Lagos High court, Coca-cola products are harmful to most individuals who consume the product.

Justice Adedayo Oyebanji ruled that Sprite and Fanta which are products from the Coca-cola company may cause rotting of teeth and that Nigerians had a lot to worry about when consuming these soft drinks.

According to CNN the judge ruled that Coca-cola drinks are ‘poisonous’ because they contain a lot of Benzoic acid and sunset additives that could pose as a health risk to most Nigerians. Justice Oyebanji has called on the Nigeria Bottling Company to place written warnings on Sprite and Fanta bottles against drinking them with vitamin C. He said that when these drinks are taken with any other product containing Vitamin C then they would produce ascorbic acid which is harmful to an individual’s health.

The judge also said that the Nigerian Agency For Food and Drug Administration Control (NAFDAC) has failed in it’s job of keeping the Nigerian people safe from such chemicals. NAFDAC are appealing against the ruling saying Coca-cola products do not exceed the Benzoic acid limits set in Nigeria to be on a maximum of 250 mg/kg.
