    It's fine to have a cheat meal once a week or so but the amount of sugar in Coca Cola is horrible, sure it may be one of the "Better" soft-drinks but they are all bad for you.

    Personally if I were to have empty calories I would rather it be in my food than drink.

    I have one Alcoholic drink and 1 soda a week. The rest is coffee/tea/juice/water.

    I hasn't presented and evident weight or health problems my end. But I did notice on my trip the US the soda tasted a little bit more...
    I dunno sweeter? Not really, but it was a bit more moreish, where here in the UK I think they use Root Sugar quite commonly, it's a bit more bitter but I don't feel the need to drink any more than 1 can every so often.

    Oh and yes I am heavily on the defense because some people blow things extremely out of proportion.

    That's all bogus

    When I was younger.. maybe around the age of 12-15, I used to drink almost a crate of 1L coca cola PER DAY.

    I was underweight my whole childhood and teenage years.


    Talk about those huge amounts of kcal. Laughable.

    The only think that went away after drinking so much cola was my acne.


    Today I don't drink it if it doesnt have whiskey in it.

I used to work at Coca Cola and there was a testing department and guess what.. I saw the ambulance a few times taking people out. I'm not kidding.
    Are you aware that WATER is a chemical?

    To be honest I don't see why people even like soft drinks that much.

    They don't really taste that interesting to me...

    imagine not drinking Coke for 40years cross a street and get killed by a car

    take everything in moderation

    enjoy your life

    Really the only soft drink I have on occasion is Ginger Ale. I enjoy it sometimes. I think it's a preferred taste, though. Many people can't stand it.

    It's not an exaggeration. All thinks considered, drinking numerous cans of coke, pepsi, etc... is bad for you.

    Lol? You don't? I can easily drink multiple bottles of whatever drink is available although I don't drink sugared products when I drink a soft drink I usually go with something with 0 calories. I usually drink unsweetened tea or tea with Splenda in it. I don't want or need the empty calories.

    Sugar turns your blood into a syrup. Your heart is designed to pump a liquid, not a syrup. 1 Bottle won't hurt you physically, but it never is just one bottle.

    The Schwepps version is my choice as regards Ginger Ale; the Canada Dry is too smooth. Doesn't have the bite I want in a good ginger ale.

    Something else that is funny is how all these health nuts often are paper pushers. I have no idea why that is, but it always is.
    Yet to meet anyone with a real, physical job complaining about calories and diets. Guess we normal, mortal beings don't have time for that.

    Of course it is and I am not denying that.

    But exaggeration is possible, the people in the ambulance, what did you expect honestly? It's testing, testing....
