Discussions that mention potassium

Diet & Nutrition board

The problem with that list of side effect is not that they were caused by the soda, they occured while the subject drank the soda.
For example if someone is in an auto accident and has bruising and they were is a drug trial, bruising would be listed as a side effect, because they don't go through and try to explain all the symptoms.
I can get a rash from drinking soda because I am allergic to potassium benzoate, but it is not really caused by soda.
