Coca Cola And Pepsi Are Used As Pesticide In India Because They Get The Job Done And Plus They Are Cheap!
Alok Prasad Putul, writes that farmers in India use Coca-Cola and Pepsi as cheaper alternative to pesticides. So, besides that they are poisonous for our metabolisms, they also have another function in India. Interesting, huh?
