I don't think they should be banned or taxed, I just think we should be smart enough to understand the difference between something that holds absolutely no nutrional value, such as Soda, and make a concious decision to not consume it.
But that's just me, to each his own.
Then way to go intentionally giving a misleading thread title.

I don't know if this is the truth (I've heard it's bad for you though). That's why I've posted it on ATS (A lot of smart people).
Thought you guys would figure it out.

This is not what I know to be the truth.
In fact, I would go so far as to call this food-nazi propaganda.
Just want to pass laws and government regulations to FORCE me to drink or eat the way you tell me to?
What if I wanna drink some window cleaners or Drano? You gonna ban those too?
I hate government interference in my life.
I don't care if soda drinkers die. I don't care.
I do care when the Govt think's it's my mommy. It pisses me off.
I am an autonomous sovereign human being. I am an adult. I can make my own choice if I want a soda or not.
This is for sure pro-government regulation propaganda. IE : It's doctored to fit an agenda. The facts are twisted and TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT.
Within 10minutes I drink a soda? Me personally, it takes me over 4 hours to consume 1 soda typically...
How can 10 teaspoons of sugar hit me in 10minutes when I cannot even drink that fast??
See, it's out of context. I am sure I can find more wrong with it if I did the necessary research to debate it.
But why bother? I already know it's bunk designed to make me accept government regulations over what kind of SODA I DRINK? Gotta be freaking kidding me.
It's a soda not Drano come on people. But Drano is legal?
The carbonation in all soft drinks causes calcium loss in the bones through a three-stage process:
1. The carbonation irritates the stomach.
2. The stomach "cures" the irritation the only way it knows how. It adds the only antacid at its disposal: calcium. It gets this from the blood.
3. The blood, now low on calcium, replenishes its supply from the bones. If it did not do this, muscular and brain function would be severely impaired.
