Let's be careful of what we repeat here, people. The internet can be a great source of information OR misinformation. No State highway patrol officer I know (and I know a few)has Coke in the trunk for blood spills. ALso, no one died at Delhi University from drinking 8 Cokes. If it were that instantly lethal, there would be a whole lot of dead people lying around the local soda fountain. The bit about bone loss is also ridiculous. You would be reduced to a pile of goo by the age if 45 if you lost 18% of your bone mass each year after age 30. I don't know any goo pile Coke drinkers, so I doubt this is true.
Yes, cola drinks and any acid forming food can be detrimental to your health. The pH balance in the biological terrain is very important. Also, the Sugar and additives in soft drinks are harmful to our health. There is nothing beneficial about soft drinks and they are definitely drinks we should avoid. However, let's not believe everything we hear online just because we don't trust doctors or the government. Let's use our brains and do the research to back up such claims before making them!
