The next time you use drink mixers, PLEASE pay attention to what's in them. Some contain sodium benzoate (like Skinny Girl Margarita mixer). Studies show that when you mix sodium benzoate with certain acids, like Vitamin C (orange juice, lime juice, etc), it creates a small toxic compound linked to leukemia and cancer. In fact, Whole Foods stopped carrying Skinny Girl mixers when it learned this information. Next time you're shopping for drink mixers, read the label - it could mean your life.
