We are Stop Big Boba and we are committed to ending the malicious practices and cruelty of Big Boba.
Did you know that the addictive chemical in boba, α-D-glucopyranoside β-D-fructofuranosyl, is a major cause in heart disease, diabetes, and obesity? The primary ingredient in boba, hydrogen oxide, is also used in nuclear reactors as a coolant. Does that sound like something you want in your body?
Boba is high in dangerous, addictive chemicals.
How does Big Boba actually target teenagers? The short answer: Advertising. Many online influencers promote "doing boba", and kids are noticing. This causes a vicious cycle of boba content consumption, peer pressure, which causes more "pro-boba" content to be made. With this much exposure, it's no wonder kids are getting addicted, and fast! Preliminary studies show that as high as 1 in 4 califORNIans are addicted, but who knows how many closeted boba addicts there are.
What can I do to help? Raise awareness. Until the malicious practices of Big Boba become mainstream, our power is truly limited. Lawmakers have been historically very reluctant to do anything about issues like this, and the power of capitalism and the free market has always promoted anything you can do to get ahead, even if this means pumping your products full of addictive chemicals. Luckily, if we all come together and raise our voices, we can be stronger together.
Together, we can Stop Big Boba.
