    We got:

    Sugar 10,6 gram per 100ml so the entire bottle contains 106 grams of sugar
    Sparkling water
    Color add: number e150d (caramel product)
    Acidic ingredients for consumption
    E338 (phosporic acid)
    Plant extracts (which include caffeine)

    Now if you compare Coca Cola to some other shit out there which contain about 10 more ingredients or High Fructose Corn Syrup instead of sugar....


    It really isn't that bad. The entire bottle is 420 kcal btw.



    I am not denying that it is unhealthy, but I am merely saying that there is some worse stuff out there and I would choose plain old
    Coca Cola over them.
    Since when did Coca Cola not contain High Fructose Corn Syrup? [Edit: nevemind DAMN INTERNATIONAL PEOPLE =P] I know there is a real sugar variety, but it is not the mainstream product [Edit: Read more posts] . Ignoring that...Nothing you listed is well all that good.

    You aren't supposed to drink the whole bottle...

    The think with coke is that its empty calories. There are little to no health benefits from it. While coke gives you needed calories to burn over the 0 calories in water, your body can do a lot more with pure water.

    but most soda in the US uses HFCS because it is cheaper, and you can put less of it by weight than cane sugar.

    The vast majority of Coca Cola outside the US uses actual sugar.

    I added a picture from my current bottle.

    In the USA it apparently does use HFCS.

    Unfortunately that's not the case here in the states. They do use HFCS in their products here which sucks because I much prefer the taste of Cane/Beet Sugar.

    I don't think I've had a drink of pure water in about four years.

    Ah.. I'm not a fan of sodas so I never bothered to look.


    In comparison with other products, I would say that it is relatively safe in terms of its ingredients. Even if you include acidity (which I think is a more important factor than the OP implied), Mountain Dew is far more notorious for its negative influence on teeth. Despite this, though, its still much less healthy than many non soda products, and ultimately being a relatively safe soda does not really imply that it isn't bad for you.

    Compared to what? Cyanide? Toxic waste? Coke is not as bad as those obviously, but you wont catch anybody that cares about their health drinking any of them. Its like saying petrol is less dangerous to drink than bleach.

    but MtnDew is made with actual fruit juices so its got to be good right?

    One of the big problems is some people drink multiple cans a day, and long term studies have shown that that can have very negative effects on your bones, not just your teeth.

    I was mostly using my second paragraph in general, not specifically addressing you. Whatever people want to take into their bodies is their own business, as long as they're informed of the consequences beforehand.

    One of my favorite jokes growing up was that Mountain Dew is a mix of water, sugar, and radioactive waste.

    Naturally. As I said, I haven't actually drunk plain water in about four years. It's either soda, mixed drinks, juice, or that Crystal Light stuff.
