A lot of people have that "who cares. We're all gonna die of something some day" approach to it, which is real sad for kids that have no choice but to drink the poison kind.

hardrain, you hit the nail right on target. Unfortunately, my dad is one of them. And to make it even worse, he's obsessed with DIET coke!!! :-[

i use to ONLY drink coke/dr. pepper, i was able to quit very easily about 4 months ago. i dont know why it was so easy for me, but now my friends are trying to quit aswell. but i guess its harder for them. i just started buying this instead http://www.snapple.com/products#/peach-tea/?id=tea       cost almost the same,taste better, in glass estrogen free bottle, and its all natural snapple!
now im trying to go mostly organic and cut the gmo shit from my diet. now if we get alot more people doing this, boycotting GMO and buying organic. we could possible turn the food market around and eliminate poisons from the store.(wishful thinking) or atleast itll make an impact, and become larger in time.

if you look at Coca Cola in a mirror image

apparently it says
No Mohammad, No Allah in Arabic, can any one verify this?

this is a youtube vid of it, a beautiful verse is sung as well  
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSFarKaLsJE

is there any Arabic speakers here can verify this?

Gee If I'd have known that I would have bought MORE just to pour down a drain!

Face it Islamism (other than Sufi) is a totally false, deceptive, corrupt and evil bloodthirsty, violent and uncivilized perverse clone-mutation hateful sub-cult of Judeo-Christianity that rightfully deserves and has richly earned the valid criticism, disrepute and disrespect it, for the most part, justly enjoys.

There is no excuse whatsoever for the malignantly evil disrespect and hatefulness which their hateful slave-manuals direct them to show hate and disrespect for all other believers in their false Levitican Amun Priesthood "God-Warlord" as a manner of hypocritically and obviously deliberately not genuinely "worshipping" All Love Itself.

Anyone who believes in (thus also worshipping) a pagan-Levitican Babylonian "mystery-school deity" named Satan is not a monotheist.

Well I don't mind boycotting a product, but I also have to agree with the CEO of Whole Foods that healthcare is NOT A RIGHT.  Show me in the Constitution where it says so?  Also the CEO of Whole Foods is very generous to his employees.  He pays for their health care, so while he says it is not a governmental right, which is correct, he does the honorable thing and pays for his employees health care. 

Like I said, show me in the Constitution of the United States where it specifies that health care is a given right?  Also don't pull the "living, breathing, document" bullshit either.  The Constitution is not a "living, breathing, document", just like your mortgage, car lease and other credit obligations are.  If you have health insurance is your policy a "living, breathing, document"?  I think not. 

My employer pays for my healthcare as does my husband.  My son who is 19 and still a student, is under my policy as it is a PPO.  I have to pay a small premium for him, but we get vision, dental, RX, etc. 

The people in this country need to stop feeding at the teet of the government.  That is the problem.  The other problem are the politicians who think they can do whatever they want no matter the consequences, even if their constitutents don't want it.  Well there is one way to solve that problem.  Vote the bastards out and I think of any year since I began voting in 1978, this year will be a year to remember when you see a number of big names lose.  That will hopefully be a good sign for the American people.

Blah. After the throwback Pepsis have left market shelves, I'm going to quit sodas indefinitely.

Not that I drank them much before, but now I won't touch them. Filled with so much hateful poisons, I think I can live without them. Go teas!

Yerba mate is caffein-like but high in antioxidants.

Stevia is the most alkaline sweetener...it even kills the bacteria that causes tooth decay and also has anti-cancer and dna protective properties and much more.

         Boycott   Coca Cola   !

To hell with that, boycott Demoblicans and Republicrats.


http://www.johntreed.com/gasolineprices.html
Energy independence

Politicians and the public are clamoring for energy independence. If you like high energy prices, that would be the way to go. How about everything independence? Let’s only buy clothing made completely in America rather than the Asian-manufactured stuff we have all been buying and wearing for decades. Let’s only buy cars made in America. Ban all imports of wine, high fashion suits, and fruits like bananas. No more rubber-vehicle tires. Use only lumber grown in the U.S., not Canada, to build houses.

Economists are a contentious political lot, but they all agree that Americans and the world are best off with totally free trade. That is, everyone (not just corporate nobles) can buy what they want from whatever country they want. When it comes to oil, we should buy the cheapest from whomever has the cheapest. That is essentially what we are doing and so is everyone else. There is a world market for oil and a world market price for oil. Banning foreign oil and only buying American oil would drive the price through the roof. Banning foreign anything would have the same effect on that product.

We see that in part in ethanol. Ethanol from corn, which we have in the U.S., is not as energy efficient as ethanol made from cane sugar. So why are we making ethanol from corn? Because America can only grow cane sugar in Hawaii, which cannot make enough for both food and fuel. So why don’t we import cane sugar ethanol? Because it would make the Fanjul family less wealthy.

Huh?

The Fanjul brothers are Cuban exiles who left that country when Fidel Castro seized their sugar mills. They now own Flo-Sun, Inc., a vast sugar and real estate conglomerate in the United States and Dominican Republic, comprising the subsidiaries Domino Sugar, Florida Crystals, and other properties. Here is what Wikipedia has to say about their political contributions and the resulting tariffs on importing sugar to the U.S. including in the form of cane-sugar based-ethanol.

Quote
"The economic benefits United States sugar producers receive from protective tariffs and price floors have been estimated to be worth approximately $65 million annually to the Fanjul Brothers and their companies.[2]. The brothers were alone responsible for nearly $1 million in soft money donations during the 2000 election cycle. By including the donations of their family members, political action committees, closest advisors and senior executives, this forms one of the largest blocks of contributors of soft and hard money to both the Democratic and Republican parties."

The 2008 book The Logic of Life by Tim Harford says the U.S. sugar cane growers get $300 million per year from the Fanjul tariffs and the sugar beet growers (Fanjuls) make $650 million. That book also puts the annual political contributions from those who want cane sugar tariffs to continue amount to about $3 million per year.

I would expect those protective tariffs are worth considerably more now. In other words, both political parties sold us and our fuel prices out to the Fanjul brothers in return for past and future political contributions. The purchases of Congressmen and Senators have a heck of a return on investment for the U.S. sugar producers: $3,000,000 in contributions per year for $950,000,000 in increased revenue per year.

By the way, this is also why Coca Cola tastes better outside of the U.S. It used to be made with cane sugar here in the U.S. as everywhere else. Because of the Fanjul protection driving up the cost of cane sugar, the American soft drink companies all switched to corn syrup instead of cane sugar. We try to drink Mexican coke in our family. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Fanjuls do as well. When my oldest son went to Europe on his honeymoon last year, he asked me why Coke tasted better there. I told him about the Fanjuls. I have read some stories in the media that corn syrup-derived sugar may be one of the reasons for the obesity epidemic in the U.S. Cane sugar, believe it or not, is better for you healthwise than corn-syrup sugar, but if we drank cane sugar-based soft drinks, the Fanjuls might have to cut back on caviar. Los Angeles Times writer Jerry Hirsch wrote a story on 8/10/08 about consumers recently demanding cane sugar instead of corn syrup in many products including soft drinks.

Max Keiser has suggested delivering a Bruce Lee style one-inch punch to show displeasure over all the abuses from government and corporations (the global warming lie, bail-out theft etc. etc.) by BOYCOTTING COCA-COLA. Not that the Coca-Cola corporation is any worse than the others, but an easier target - public displeasure would bee clearly shown with a knock-out blow. BOYCOTT COKE!!!

I would NEVER drink cola anyway. So unhealthy & tasted revolting anyway.

I do not drink fizzy pop at all. Rots your teeth.

I only drink water, a bit of milk & the odd beer or glasss of wine.

If you want to boycott all products containing "glucose/fructose" (corn syrup) in favor of those made with "sugar" as an alternative to boycotting Republicrats and Demoblicans, then you make the Fanjuls much richer, drive up prices and (by that) support the very same perverse political corruption you're "fighting".

Boycotting glucose/fructose products is like poking your eyes out to spite your face.

I really think the focus should stay on 911 and all the LIES being propagated as truth.

The obesity epidemic and 9/11 have eerie similarities. Both are manufactured crises perpetrated by criminal elements of the government (look at all the politicians, lobbyists, and so-called "food police" in Washington paid off by the Rockefellers, Monsanto, and the corn lobby), and both manufactured crises are being used as pretexts for stripping us of our freedoms (deathcare reform is nothing but a "'Health' PATRIOT Act" being presented as their "solution" to the manufactured health crisis which includes the manufactured obesity epidemic). We need an Obesity/Health Truth Movement and use all the documented international research on HFCS, aspartame, and MSG to expose the fact that obesity, diabetes, and cancer are manufactured crises being used to justify what amounts to a tax on life itself (forcing people to buy health insurance).

Thank you so much for posting that list!!

It would figure they own DANNON, I should have known better!!!

I read the ingredients of Activa 'Light' yogurt and it is laced with Aspartame and fructose syrup.  It is not claiming to be diet yet Aspartame is placed into this yogurt.  It is important to READ LABELS!

Yet they pretty much promote it as a "diet" food in their ads. I wonder if Jamie Lee Curtis is aware of the "Aspartame Deception".

Agreed.  It would be impossible to organize a WORLD WIDE boycott against this behemoth.  IMPOSSIBLE. 

Sad but true. There will always be a lot of people who say "yeah Coke is bad for you" and then they'll turn around and take their kids to McDonald's and buy each of them a Coke or Diet Coke and poison their kids with either HFCS or aspartame. And there will always be the sheeple who will believe everything the idiot box says and call you a kook for saying/believing HFCS and aspartame are bad for you.

THE COCA-COLA CASE - A DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT COKE AND LABOUR RIGHTS IN THE BOTTLING PLANTS.

You'll never look at a can of Coke the same way after seeing this documentary film.

Directors German Gutierrez and Carmen Garcia present a searing indictment of the Coca-Cola empire and its alleged kidnapping, torture and murder of union leaders trying to improve working conditions in Colombia, Guatemala and Turkey. The filmmakers follow labour rights lawyers Daniel Kovalik and Terry Collingsworth and an activist for the Stop Killer-Coke! Campaign, Ray Rogers, as they attempt to hold the giant U.S. multinational beverage company accountable in this legal and human rights battle.

The Coca-Cola Case - A documentary film about Coke and labour rights in the bottling plants.

In January, February and March of 2010 the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and Cinema Politica are teaming up to organize a tour of the documentary THE COCA-COLA CASE, a film about the legal case against Coca-Cola and their operations in Colombia. Below are the tour dates, the film's synopsis, trailer and other information.

***UPDATE***On January 11, 2010, lawyers representing Coca-Cola sent Cinema Politica a letter implying that by showing THE COCA COLA CASE throughout our network we were violating the law. As far as we have been told, this is not the case, and we are continuing with our plans to screen this critical and controversial documentary throughout our network. For more on the legal letter, check out the media links at the bottom of this page.

Your right, Dasani was a great invention for Coca-Cola, instead of take water & adding a ton of garbage to it, they could just take the water & make a ton of $$$. But they are doing somewhat of a good thing if their water is truly purified & FlourideFree :)

& also just in case none of you guys know Coca-Cola also owns Naked & Odwalla  (Juice Brands), Toms of Maine ("Natural" Toothpaste, some flouride-free, but Target has only poison!), Vitamin Water & many many more products.



WELL...IF ANYONE HERE IS FROM THE UK, REMEMBER THE DASANI SCARE. They were pulling dasani off the shelves because it had a high benzene content. Turned out it was in hte local water supply and the OUTRAGE was because they were passing off tap water as mineral water...

2 points,

1- THE BENZENE WAS IN TAP WATER????

2- THE DASANI was pulled off the shelves, what about the COKE made using the same water????

no one seemed to even consider the second point...too much fluoride i guess....

It's because their addicted to the stuff like High Fructose Corn Syrup, Aspartame, & MSG. High Fructose Corn. I'm Glad I got off that stuff, but I'm still struggling to stop wasting time on sports & video games. We all have our faults!

& advise you all to check out all the different ingredients that MSG (MonoSodium Glutimate) can be hidden in.  & here's a great article to check out!

The Cover-Up of Hidden MSG
http://www.naturalnews.com/025066.html

The Cover-Up of Hidden MSG
by Avi Offer, citizen journalist
See all articles by this author
Email this author


(NaturalNews) The safety of MSG is a controversial issue that deserves much more attention, debate and discussion within the health industry, the mainstream media and the public. Independent researchers, experts and whistle-blowers claim that MSG functions not only as a flavor enhancer, but as a harmful neurotoxin that has adverse effects in the short term and long term for much more than 2% of the public. However, the FDA regards MSG as generally safe and claims that only 2% of the public suffers from adverse reactions to it. They allow many companies, such Kraft, Pringles and Campbell's Soup, to hide it in seemingly benign ingredients without including it on the label. In many ways, the FDA has been part of a cover-up of hidden MSG in many food and beverage products as well as a cover-up of MSG's potential health risks. The public deserves the right to have proper labeling of MSG and to be completely aware of its many health risks in order to make fully informed decisions.

The terms "MSG" and "Processed Free Glutamic Acid" can be used interchangeably because they`re essentially and functionally equivilant. Sodium has no function in MSG other than to turn it into the salt form commonly known as monosodium glutamate. The only way a smart consumer can avoid it is by knowing the list of ingredients that contain or result in MSG.

Food and beverage companies often use Processed Free Glutamic Acid (MSG) as a cheap flavor enhancer. However, according to independent studies and researchers/insiders such as neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, ex-food processing scientist and engineer Carol Hoernlein (www.msgtruth.org), consumer advocate Debbie Anglesey (www.msgmyth.com), Dr. John W. Olney, and MSG activists and investigators Jack Samuels & Dr. Adrienne Samuels, the founders of the Truth in Labeling Campaign (www.truthinlabeling.org), Processed Free Glutamic Acid is also a harmful neurotoxin and excitotoxin that leads to and/or worsens many health problems ranging from headaches, migraines, mood change, nausea, pains in joints/bones, sleep disorders, chronic post nasal drip, heart irregularities and excessive perspiration to Asthma, ADD, Depression, Obesity and many more. It is also implicated in neurodegenerative diseases such as Lou Gehrig`s (ALS), MS, Parkinson`s and Alzheimer`s.

According to the FDA and The Glutamate Association (see www.msgfacts.com), MSG is regarded as natural and generally safe. The FDA`s wordy rules and regulations treat bound glutamate and free glutamate as one despite that free glutamate is processed and more harmful to your health than bound glutamate, which is found in protein that had not been processed by manufacturers or through fermentation. Jack Samuels commented that "the staff at the FDA are unbelievably fantastic in their ability to write in a way that deceives the public, but loosely based on fact. We refer to such writing as half truths. Read the FDA points carefully and you will see how MSG can be hidden in foods." The FDA has not returned phone calls to comment about this important matter yet.

Please feel free to watch this 60 Minutes segment about hidden MSG from 1991.

The FDA allows companies to hide Processed Free Glutamic Acid (MSG) in many seemingly benign ingredients without disclosing its presence or precise quantity on labels. Moreover, the FDA considers all of those ingredients to be natural even though they contain the artificial chemical, Processed Free Glutamic Acid (MSG).

The following ingredients always contain various amounts of unlabeled Processed Free Glutamic Acid (MSG):

Autolyzed yeast
Calcium caseinate
Dry milk powder
Dry milk protein
Gelatin
Glutamate
Glutamic acid
Hydrolyzed corn gluten
Hydrolyzed soy protein
Hydrolyzed wheat protein
Monopotassium glutamate
Monosodium glutamate
Natrium glutamate
Sodium caseinate
Textured protein
Yeast food
Yeast nutrient

The following ingredients often contain or result in various amounts of unlabeled Processed Free Glutamic Acid (MSG):

Barley malt
Bouillon
Broth
Carrageenan
Citric acid
Corn Starch
Corn Syrup
Enzymes
Flavors/Flavoring
High Fructose Corn Syrup
Maltodextrin
Malt extract
Malted Barley
Malt flavoring
Natural chicken flavoring
Natural beef flavoring
Natural flavors/flavor
Natural pork flavoring
Pectin
Protein fortified food
Seasonings
Soy protein isolate
Soy protein or soy protein concentrate
Soy sauce
Stock
Ultra-pasteurized
Whey
Whey protein
Whey protein concentrate
Whey protein isolate

Regardless of whether or not Processed Free Glutamic Acid (MSG) is safe, why doesn`t the FDA require companies to disclose it on food/beverage labels? Why does the FDA consider MSG to be natural? Why isn`t the list of ingredients that contain MSG fully exposed to the public, students, doctors and the mainstream media? Why are food and drugs regulated by the same administration and not separate ones? What will it take to bring accountability and democracy into the health industry?

When asked whether the public has the right to know all sides of the issue of MSG so that they can make fully informed decisions, Heidi Rebello, Deputy Assistant Commissioner of Public Affairs at the FDA, replied, "Yes, of course. Why wouldn`t they?" In reality, though, the public doesn`t know all sides of the issue given the cover up of hidden MSG and all of its health hazards. Recall that the FDA had once were part of the cover-up claiming that cigarettes were safe for the public.

Please feel free to continue consuming McDonald`s, Burger King, Dorito`s, Pringles, Pepsi, Entenmann`s, Snapple, Glaceau Vitamin Water and Campbell`s Soup if you desire to, but at least consume it while knowing all of the risks to your health. Do you trust independent studies/researchers or the FDA? Would you take the health risks to consume a food or beverage that has MSG, a controversial, potentially toxic ingredient, even if it`s allowed to be hidden on labels? Do you believe that the FDA is truly living up to its mission statement (click here)? Decide for yourself, do the research, and, most importantly, ask questions.

I have caved once and bought a litre of coke (for my rye) since this thread was started.  I dont think I have bought any other Coke products.


I am struggling with that too. The other day I went out with my friends and the restaurant didn't have any water. I could either go with nothing or go with soda. So I chose soda. > < so ashamed.
