    Neither is coffee, smoking, alcohol or snus. I don't consume any of those, but I do drink cola on the weekends. Whilst I don't think you should drink any excessive amounts of it, you also have to try and enjoy life to the best you can while you still live... That said I still have no plans on trying smoking/snus, and keep alcohol to an extreme minimum.

    Of course not, just like how Marlboro isn't that bad for you in comparison to Winston Lights. Doesn't mean it's not bad.

    The majority of Coke contains HFCS.

    Also, the caloric content and acidity is harsh on your teeth, plus the calories are just unnecessary.

    What are you comparing it to?

    Compare soda to other drinks, not soda to food...

    Soda vs Ice tea
    Soda vs Water
    Soda vs Juice

    And so on.

    And if you actually read the OP then you knew I had said that already and that there was no need for repeating this part. :x

    I generally only drink water when I don't have the time to make tea and my budget limits other things. American water tastes.. strange.

    I heard that drinking from the Dead Sea will increase your life expectancy by 5 years.
    “…the whole trouble lies here. In words, words. Each one of us has within him a whole world of things, each man of us his own special world. And how can we ever come to an understanding if I put in the words I utter the sense and value of things as I see them; while you who listen to me must inevitably translate them according to the conception of things each one of you has within himself. We think we understand each other, but we never really do.”

    Not true at all, natural fruit sugars are fine, also the natural sugar found in milk, in fact, certain sugars are essential for well being, but I agree there are bad sugars and it's in most of what we consume.

    OT coke is bad no matter what, I used to be addicted to the stuff, drinking more than the average person... I no longer drink it anymore because of how it made my body feel (and look), think of it this way - A can of Coke has the equivalent of 10 tsp. of sugar.

    It's not the calories, but the insane amounts of sugar in sodas and soft drinks. Plus the corn syrup makes you so thirsty. I don't know why anyone would want a soda on a hot day. It just makes you more thirsty and is not refreshing at all. They do have Pepsi I believe with real sugar, as well as Mountain Dew etc. I've had them and they're actually pretty good. It's not syrupy at all, it goes down more smooth and it's less carbonated. Still a hell of a lot of sugar, but you can taste the difference.

    But Mountain Dew kills sperm!!!! LOL

    In all seriousness though, in my book it's just as bad as any other soft drink. Last I checked a can of Coke is something like 40 grams of sugar (I'm pretty sure the coke here in Canada uses HFCS as well but I could be wrong) and 43 grams of carbs alone... That's just plain nasty! I'll stick to my tap water with lemon and iced tea thank you very much

    There is chemically little difference between "natural sugars" i.e. fructose and "refined sugars" i.e. sucrose. It's largely a myth that natural sugars are any better than refined sugar. Both are just as bad for you.

    I remember making homemade pop in Chemistry class. Step 1 was:

    Dissolve as much sugar into the water as you can.

    Both coffee and alcohol have been shown in numerous studies to have benefits if used moderately. A cup of joe in the morning and a glass of red in the evening iss actually good for you.
