It's so common place that it goes unmentioned, and unchallenged. Its logo is in every shop and street, it sponsors TV programs, appears almost everywhere, and is readily valued and accepted by the unthinking masses. It's "down with kids" who drink truckloads of the stuff and have it for breakfast. It even has thousands of devoted fans, and millions of addicted consumers. .....The reason I'm singling it out for attention is that it deserves some. There has been surprisingly little negative reaction to a company that is systematically trying to poison the entire global population. Coca-Cola drinking causes health problems on a scale similar to cigarette smoking, but is perceived as a harmless drink suitable for children. ....Take out the water, and all it's remaining ingredients are known toxins, but then even the tap water they use is toxic.... The two most dangerous toxins aresugar (implicated in almost all modern disease), and aspartame (a Monsanto manufactured carcinogenic toxin), and there's plenty more dodgy stuff in every can. ....Imagine inventing a drug that was dirt cheap to make, highly addictive, totally legal, and could be sold readily to children who become hooked for life. Like cigarettes but without the bad press. Imagine pushing it for over a century and getting away with it…Sure, later on a high proportion of the consumers will become fat or unhealthy, diabetics or cancer victims. But there's plenty more where they came from, and plenty more in new markets like China and South America. ...Oh yes, and by the way, don't go thinking that the other soft drinks are any better, Red Bull, "V", Pepsi, and the rest are all toxic too. All the stuff they put in soft drinks is bad. Very bad... In New Zealand there is one soft drink manufacturer that isn't trying to kill it's customers - Phoenix Natural Foods. This is an ethical company who make real drinks including a cola that tastes so much better than the filth pushed by Coca-Cola that you will never go back.....Enjoy Coca-Cola. Not.

Moderation, all in moderation. Too much of a good think will never be good for you.

I actually remember about a few years back one of my friends whom use to teach spoke about a scholar's unhealthy diet. He had coke and crisps every day of his life. He did not have a long life when they did an autopsy they found his liver was extremely damaged and hard. We were wondering if it was the result of drinking coke.

Wow E II,some heavy stuff there,if thats the case why arent the consumers crying foul,enough or are they just this side of the line,barely legal?The SABS mark of approval,what is it for ?the contents,the container or the label?More often than not companys refer to the SABS mark but in reality it refers to the cotainer and not the contents.Playing with words.

UNBELIEVABLE Josedias. This is one of my pet subjects so I couldn't resist taking advantage and posting just a SMALL portion of the article:" The Health Hazards of Drinking Coca-Cola and other Soft Drinks. "The allergenicity of penicillin in the general population is thought to be at least ten percent. Nearly 25 percent of these individuals will display hives, angioedema, or anaphylaxis upon ingestion of penicillinS. hives and anaphylactic symptoms have been traced to penicillin in milk, soft drinks, and frozen dinners." "Many general dietary factors have been suggested as a cause of osteoporosis, including: low calcium-high phosphorus intake, high-protein diet, high-acid-ash diet, high salt intake, and trace mineral deficiencies. It appears that increased soft drink consumption is a major factor that contributes to osteoporosis. A deficiency of vitamin K leads to impaired mineralization of bone. Boron deficiency may contribute greatly to osteoporosis as well as to menopausal symptoms." http://www.organicconsumers.org/school/cocacola021605.cfm

The story begins in Atlanta, Georgia on May 8, 1886, when a pharmacist called Dr John Smith Pemberton first mixed Coca-Cola in his back yard. The formula, which was made from carbonated water, cane sugar syrup, caffeine, extracts of Kola nuts and cola leaves, was brought to the nearby Jacobs' Pharmacy where it made its debut as a soft drink the same day, selling for only 5 cents. His bookkeeper named this drink "Coca-Cola" after the first two ingredients. And the same distinctive script he wrote it in, is the same logo they use to this day. In January 1893 Coca-Cola was registered with the U.S. patent office. Later on in 1915 the Root glass company created the famous contour glass bottle for Coca-Cola in 1915. In 1917 Coca-Cola was found to be the world's most recognized trademark with a record of 3 million Coke's sold per day. Unfortunately, John Pemberton fell ill, and did not live to see his product’s success.Sadly, in the first year of Coke’s existance, Pemberton and his partner only made $50. Pemberton sold two-thirds of his business in 1888 to cover his losses and keep the business afloat. He died later that year, and Mr Asa Candler, an Atlanta druggist, purchased total interest in Coca-cola for an unbelievable $2 300 in 1891. In 1891, Candler and his brother formed the Coca-Cola Company.

VERY BAD. Avoid it like the plague. I tried Coca-cola in 1940 and did not like it. I am now 80 years old and have not touched the stuff since. But remember, it is excellent for derusting nuts, bolts and nails. Also first class for cleaning toilets. Just pour a glassful into the bowl and leave for three hours. Bowl comes out clean as a whistle. But whatever you do DO NOT DRINK THE STUFF. Anyway, it rots your teeth.

It almost sounds as if it's healthier to sniff coke, than to drink it.

If you look carefully you'll notice that the link applies to India, not South Africa. Coke is neither good nor bad for you. It just is.

Oh we all know its poison but its nice tasting poison, so I buy it for myself in a can and drink it in my car quickly once in a blue moon on the sly.

Coca cola is full of sugar so that alone is bad for you.
