There may be a lot more to worry about than all those calories in your soda.

A chemical found in the caramel coloring that's added to some soft drinks might cause cancer.

Elevated levels of the chemical are found in 12-ounce cans of Pepsi One. 

A consumer reports toxicologist says there's no reason for consumers to be exposed to the chemical, since it's avoidable and just used to color beverages.
