How can you trust a company that continues to poison their consumers with sugar and chemicals? There is nothing natural in a bottle of Coca-Cola and drinking high doses of sugar is only going to cause excess inflammation in your body that can lead to many serious health problems down the road. Did you know that in one 12 oz cane of Coke there are 39 grams of sugar?!? Americans ingest 1.7 million tons (or 10.8 pounds per person) of sugar each year from Coca-Cola alone. Can we really be that surprised that obesity and diabetes are two epidemics in the U.S. today?
Not only is Coca-Cola poisoning their consumers with their own products, they are now trying to affect the quality standards in the U.S. Food Industry. In 2013, Coca-Cola secretly funneled more than $1.5 million dollars through the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) in order to block an initiative that would have required the labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Personally, I've always been against supporting this big giant, but sometimes it hard to keep with with all the brands they own. I'm bothered Coca-Cola now owns Zico and Honest Tea. I hope Whole Foods takes these brands off their shelf!!
Don't forget that you have a voice. Every time you buy their product you are supporting unhealthy eating and aiding them in their fight against labeling their foods with GMO ingredients. Do you really feel comfortable supporting this type of company? You have my word that I will never buy one of these products again!!!
Do yourself a favor and drink water filtered from your house! If you buy bottled water make sure to avoid Dasani and Smart Water as they are owned by Coke!
