The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

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.

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.
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
