    Water is bad for you in excessive amounts too. Coca-Cola is delicious. Stop hating everyone who says 400cal is bad in 1 bottle. Who drinks the entire bottle in either A. 1 sitting or B. 1 day? Crazy people who can't control moderation

    Yeah I suppose if you place something in a context with worse things - it's not as bad as those things, but that hardly makes it alright for you to consume.

    Better watch out for that one chemical, dihydrogen monoxide. It's really bad; breathing it results in death.

    You know, for water to be bad for you, you have to consume a ridiculous amount.

    You are just making it out to be the devil now.

    Moderation in everything is required, that's why I have only a glass once in a while.

    But come your 'stories' don't mean jack all, I mean really? It is called testing for a reason. Those people signed up for it, we enjoy the final safe product.

    For the record, I drink a TON of Coke

    But

    In the Military we ran an experiment. We'd heard that you could take Coca Cola syrup, as in not yet carbonated, and strip off coats of wax on a floor.

    It worked

    To me, that says something about the product...

    I still drink it though, it's delicious

    Oh I will consume and there is nothing to make right.

    It is made for consumption.
    Yes, in moderation, I don't have anything to prove or be responsible for, I am merely pointing something positive out.

    That's because it contains phosphoric acid. Kind of like how lemons contain citric acid.

    I despise Mexican food. It always gives me indigestion for some reason; and this coming from a person that lived in India for four years.

    There are 240 calories in a 20 Oz Coke. So that's only 2 cans of coke, and I know people drink that much in a day...

    Go you! I don't mind if you ruin your body with the things you consume. I only draw the line if you try and ruin mine in the process.

    Calories schmalories. It's the source of calories that matters, not the intake.

    If you care even a little about your future health when you're in your 40 or 50s you'd never touch the stuff... Or if you did, use it as a once in a while treat, not a daily drink.

    It's like the golden ticket to diabetes.
    Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
    You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.

    I don't know who told you it was okay. Or even where you got the notion that any of those ingredients are okay. They're not though. You also didn't include the High Fructose Corn Syrup. Sugar is not THAT bad, but in high amounts it can be. The same can be told for all the other ingredients you listed.
