    for such confident gmcr's, it must be tough for you to understand why Joolz has to complain about the bad amazon reviews of the 2.0, and why Leor runs the community coffeehouse like a fascist....... and Joolz, what would we all do without your sharing of the latest walmart sunday circular??? as Leor would say, LOL LOL

    Do you not know anything about valuation, or are you just like Leor, trying to make it like you are long, while selling, shorting,etc?

    Are K-cups even safe?

    I am aware that none of this information has actually been tested on K-Cups, but let’s reminds ourselves of the facts:

    K-cup pods are made of plastic, giving us a 70% chance of chemically induced estrogenic activity
    K-cup pods are exposed to high heats and boiling liquids and contain and act as a passageway for acidic contents: coffee grounds, giving us a 95% chance of chemically induced estrogenic activity
    From these conclusions, it’s safe to assume that K-cups are releasing any number of xenoestrogens into our “fresh” cup of coffee, and ultimately, our bodies. The best coffee we can drink using a Keurig is our own, freshly ground coffee beans coupled with the most convenient, stainless steel, reusable K-cup (Link). Great for the environment, great for you!

    Now, I fully understand how difficult—and let’s face it, impractical—a plastic-free world would be, but it is crucial for the sake of healthy and clean living to acknowledge the research facts and findings about plastics, and avoid what you can, when you can.

    K-cup pods are made from a mix of plastics, and while the pod packs claim BPA-free, they are still made with a number of different plastics, nonetheless. Here’s what we actually know about plastic.

    According to an article published on USA Today’s website, most plastic products contain chemicals that act like the sex hormone, estrogen, in the form of xeno- (or foreign) estrogens, even those that are marked, BPA-free. Approximately 70% of all plastic used in the study, tested positive for estrogenic activity (EA)—the most common form of endocrine disruptor activity. Now, that may not seem like a big deal, but here’s what we know about environmental estrogen and too much estrogenic activity in the body.

    Because these types of EA have shown to alter the structure of human cells, products that leach chemicals with EA can cause any number of health risks, including (but not limited to), early puberty in females, decreased sperm counts in males, altered function of reproductive organs, obesity, and an increase in the rates of some breast, ovarian, testicular, and prostate cancers (Source). Furthermore, the leaching of such chemicals is accelerated when exposed to real world uses, such as acidic contents, UV radiation exposure, microwaving, and/or moist heat via boiling or dishwashing. Now, your once 70% figure of plastics testing positive for EA has risen to 95%, and almost all commercially available plastic products will leach detectable EA chemicals—even those marked BPA-free! Xenoestrogens are hard to detoxify through the liver and certain types of chemicals, organochlorines for example, are known to accumulate in fatty human tissue and fluid, such as breasts and breast milk.

    how many of these licensing deals will be voided once it is determined that kgm did not live up to their end of the deal (tamper proof 2.0 technology)?

    the 2.0 brewers are winding up in liquidation already, with geniuses speculating that it might be related to how easy it is to circumvent the 2.0 lockout mechanism, when it is in fact likely more related to people not wanting to even deal with the lockout mechanism

    was the creation of the 2.0 wasted capital?

    time will tell
