Im sure that coke and other soft drinks are bad for you, but the article you posted is actually an ad for some snake oil sugar blocker. Scroll down and you'll see.

The beginning of the article states it plainly:

"Don’t drink cola if you want to be healthy. Consuming soft drinks is bad for so many reasons that science cannot even state all the consequences. If you do drink soft drinks, as well as other sugary foods, you need the two products listed at the bottom of this article."

Informing is ok. Dubious infomercials no thanks.

I'm with you on that. I drink it with my rum that's about it. After watching the 'clean your battery terminals with Coke' trick I cut out the sodas. Figure my guts have to be a little more delicate than battery terminal corrosion.

People often say this, but is it really true? I have said it myself from time to time, but looking at the whole picture, I was wrong.

When you eat healthier, and cleaner, and more organic, you sleep better, you wake up refreshed, you have more energy throughout the day, you have less aches and pains, less trips to the doctor, a longer, more active life. Of course, moderation is key. You can still grill a steak a couple of times a month, and have a beer or a stogey with your buddies. You can still have a slice of birthday cake a few times a year.

If you lived both lifestyles, I think you would find yourself much happier on the cleaner diet. You really are not giving up much, and you are gaining so much. In fact, it is also cheaper, you save money. It is also a great bonding experience for the whole family to shop organically, or grow your food, prepare fresh foods, and sit down and eat together. You teach great skills and habits to your kids, and you all have something in common to bond over, plus the kids are healthier, less trips to the doctor, less medicines, better behavior.

The benefits are endless, the sacrifices are minimal.

Ray Rogers and Corporate Campaign, Inc. targeting Coke. So they are trying to bring in additional people with article such as those who hate surgar or those who hate caffine to fight a political battle against coke. So why just Coke? What is his agenda against Coke? It most likely does not have to do with the health of the public at large. Or with child labor in South America. Dig a little deeper.Dont be blinded by hate in order to follow a group who cares less about your cause or beliefs they just want your hate to be pointed in the direction they want for the purpose they want it to be.

Heres another article.
www.corporatecampaign.org...
If it is a true cause about any issue he would not limit his target to a single company wwould he?Does all the sugar cane from South America go in a Coke bottle? Or is it shared with all the other companies selling the same type of product and even other companies selling different types of products?

thaanks for pointing out the ad with that, I wondered why they specifically targeted coke, all sodas are sweet and have acid.

yes juices can be sweet even sweeter than some sodas.

long time ago, juice was served in a juice glass, it was small!!!!!

has anyone tried those new cookies called whonu? they have some fiber and a bunch of vitamins, I can eat 1 or 2 and stop!

I don't buy regular cookies very often because I know I can't stop eating them.

What! This thread has just made me want to go out and buy a coke

I've heard if you leave a steak in coke overnight that it will eat the coke. I haven't tried this yet as I like my steak too much.

I haven't read all the responses yet...

My take on it...

I have had a Coke (soda) addiction since I was a teenager. However, Coke is no longer my favorite choice.... Not just the caffeine addiction (which is just as bad as other substance addictions) but it became a habit. I wake up, drink it and get that buzz....

I have tried many times to stop this addiction. It is hard. The migraines and sluggishnes (withdraws) I get were so bad, I ended up caving and drinking it again. And when I would take that first hit of soda...well I cant break T&C here, but like any addiction....that first hit is a major rush....and I could go about my day as normal.

With that said, I have cut down tremendously to either 1 or none a day....im slowly weaning myself off of it. Not only because it is so bad for me as mentioned in the OP, but because I dont want that addiction in my life. On top of that, I have had THREE bouts of large kidney stones in the past year and half...while there is no absolute certainty that the soda has caused these stones in me, there is probability...and I cant handle any more kidney stones...

For my forensics degree, I had to take a drug class and learn everything about them including OTC...........AND caffeine. We had to chart how much we had in a day...seeing it on paper was horribly alarming. And it seemed everyone in my class had this addiction.

One day I shall be fully free from it....im very close to it!

It is a WONDERFUL marinade!! I use it a lot. It adds a sweet taste and the acid tenderizes the meat. I use coke in all of my marinades, but I rarely marinade, I usually just grill it up fresh.

You should try it! Coke, plus some worcestershire, plus salt, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper, and garlic wine vinegar. Leave it overnight, toss it on the grill the next day at lunch, just flame kiss both sides of the meat, leave the middle nice and pink and juicy.

When you hear that Diet Coke is a good cleaning agent, makes you wonder whether the 10 sugars might just be a safer bet!

Pop is actually a major reason for obesity especially Coke Cola. The Americans have it the worst though due to all the Coke Cola advertising I believe, but I could be wrong. But I'm not wrong about pop being a major reason for obesity.

Glad I gave up drinking Pop a 4 months ago, used to be a big Pipsi fan but now it's strickly water for me

Stick with it. I was hooked on the stuff for decades, so was my wife. We used to literally go through a 2 liter bottle a day of the stuff. Now it's a rare treat, maybe I'm cracking and buying fast food, sure, gimme a coke. Maybe I'm in the mood for some rum and coke.

But as a drink? I completely replaced it with water, plain old britta purified water. Instant difference, once you get over the withdrawl. But here's the rub, I'm still drinking at least 3 cups of coffee a day, not measurement cups, 3 large cups. So I'm still getting my caffeine fix.

but I no longer crave coke, or any soft drink. No amount of propaganda led me to that decision, my body did. Within a few weeks of quitting, I was sleeping better, feeling a heck of a lot better, and started shedding a few pounds.

now that I've been on this local / organic/ real food craze, it's gotten even better, I feel about 10 years younger, and I'm about to cut yet another hole in my belt to tighten it up further.

----- back to coke-----

Any softdrink is bad, and it got incredibly worse once they replaced cane sugar with high fructose corn syrup. There are various documentaries you can find that will explain to you how the body processes fructose corn syrup differently than cane sugar, and how much worse it is for you.

Let alone it's made from potentially GMO crops.

And don't even think about diet soda, oh man, you are better off drinking coke and getting diabetes, than drinking diet soda that actually makes you gain more weight, while potentially causing brain injuries and cancer (aspertame, nutrasweet, whatever they are calling it now) But, kiddies, moderation is the key, anything in moderation, short of radioactive isotopes, is fine, but you really should understand what you are putting into your body and the effects on it.

As well, do you remember BPA? That plastic they banned from baby bottles? Yeah, look inside the next can of soda you open, or beer, or soup. Guess what that coating inside the can is.

Yup.

And furthermore, it actually works!!

In studies of Rats....

Lethal amounts of radiation, given all at once, kill the subject. But, the same amount of radiation, given in small dosages over a larger period of time increased the lifespan by 30%, increased reproductive rates, and had less health problems than their counterparts.

Or so the study on one of my Physic's teachers doorway read. The repeated the study with Arsenic Poison, and got similar results.

The conclusion was that small amounts of toxins would stimulate the bodies to repair faster, run at a more efficient metabolism, kill off weak or diseased cells, and keep the healthier cells reproducing faster.

While its true that Coke makes a good marinade, better to use natural "coke"
say from Trader Joes.

Buttermilk also makes a great marinade, especially for chicken.
Got Milk?

I've had a benign heart arrhythmia for years. I noticed over time that it would start up the minute I ate something ... or so I thought. It was only once I started to write things down that I learned it was actually the SODA that I was drinking (with my food) that was causing my heart to go bonkers. I stopped eating/drinking anything with high fructose corn syrup in it. Guess what? No more irregular heartbeat.

Years ago, I was told by a cardiologist that my arrhythmia became worse during pregnancy because of the strain that pregnancy put on my digestive system. I have no doubt my heart reacts when I ingest soda for the same damn reason.

I would say you lived the same lifestyle with different amounts of moderation so you are not really on board with the OP but on ShadowAngel85's side of the fence.
