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.

My favorite part of this thread is where everyone thinks HFCS is any worse for you then sugar

I myself alternate between drinking diet sodas and water regularly, sometimes I'll have green tea from Starbucks on a school day as well. But yeah, out of all the other things out there, Coke is far from the worst you could have. There's some stuff out there, like Baskin Robbin's Chocolate Oreo milkshake(2600calories), that can be a lot worse.

lol all sugar is bad for you, the basis of cellular motabolism requires glucose,
Coca cola is as harmless as bottled water. It's what you do between drinking your coca cola or eating your Big mac that makes it either healthy or unhealthy. I bet you that self induced stress caused by worrying about everything you eat is actually more harmful.

With few exceptions in life nothing is actually bad for you as long as you use moderation. The simplest of things can be bad for you in excess. Caffeine is a drug which can be addicting which in turn can cause excessive use.
