Whiskey, beer, cigarettes, red meat, large amounts of carbohydrates, Red Bull, and actual coc aine.

Yeah, they threw away billions of dollars.
One reason to hate them is because they used coc aine to get people to keep drinking their soda, once they became big enough they only let trace amounts in, now that their an soda-empire, no coc aine in there. Nice play, Coke.edit on 13-4-2012 by oniraug because: (no reason given)

I don't have a problem with the article.
I still occasionally drink a can of coke. I do it because I like the taste of it. I'm also aware it has a horrendous effect on the body.
The trick is to only have the damaging but tasty stuff as a special treat. Not as an everyday staple. Well, not unless acquiring type 2 diabetes is your stated aim.
