These two agents create a very unique but deadly combination of excitotoxins that kill off your brain cells. However, before they do so, they go out with a bang by giving you something akin to a buzz. It’s the perfect plan to get you to go back to the store to buy another soda.

  • Symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease
  • Migraines
  • Cognitive problems
