Well, then I guess these other foods are swill too:

"Other processed foods that may contain phosphoric acid include breakfast or cereal bars, flavored waters, bottled coffee beverages and processed meats. Many fresh meat and poultry products are enhanced with salt solutions to increase their moisture and flavor. These solutions also contain phosphoric acid or phosphate salts."

"Phosphoric acid or phosphates can also be found in milk, buttermilk, cottage cheese and nondairy coffee creamers."

Not to mention baking soda.

OP, did you not read my other post?

Incidentally, you do realize that alcohol is actual poison, right? Last I checked there is no warning on bottles of alcohol.

One level below battery acid? What does that even mean? Car batteries use sulfuric acid which is a completely different substance and a much stronger acid. Sulfuric acid is also a strong oxidizer. Phosphoric acid is not. In all actuality, phosphoric acid is generally similar in strength and effect to other commonly ingested acids (citric, malic, acetic, etc.) The concentration of the acid is also low. Coke's acidity is similar to that of lemon juice. Also, the presence of acid in food has not been linked to osteoporosis. The biggest problem with Coke and sodas in general is the high levels of sugar and/or presence of artificial sweeteners and coloring.

Alcohol (ethanol) is no more a poison than, say, salt. Consuming excessive amounts of either is lethal. Consuming moderate, reasonable amounts of either is generally harmless.


The old adage rings true - there are no toxic substances, just toxic levels of them.

Obesity and diabetes rates are as high as they have ever been. I could post some stats and maybe they aren't the majority (as in over 50%) but pretty close. I don't know where you live but I do see a lot of fat people around.

Quote:
Hispanics (47.0%) and non-Hispanic blacks (46.8%) had the highest age-adjusted prevalence of obesity, followed by non-Hispanic whites (37.9%) and non-Hispanic Asians (12.7%).
The prevalence of obesity was 35.7% among young adults aged 20 to 39 years, 42.8% among middle-aged adults aged 40 to 59 years, and 41.0% among older adults aged 60 and older.

If you will notice I stated 50+, plus means 50 or more.

And it doesn't matter really, it's nitpicking.

Cigarettes were not seen as unhealthy in the past, when exactly it was does not matter and is beside the point.

Cigarette ads were not taken off the air till 1970, I do still remember them.

Quote:
To the modern-day reader, the pitching of cigarettes as healthy (even to youth and pregnant moms) and the use of doctors’ endorsements may appear horrifying. Yet before 1950, there wasn’t good evidence showing that cigarette smoking was bad for you.
And how long were cigarettes around before this?

I posted this previously.

The whole point is it DOES take a long time for some people to get the message. Some never get it.

I would have to disagree.

Next time you have some Coke around, I don't think it matters whether it's diet or regular? try pouring some on the street, close to your house and just leave it there to evaporate.

I wouldn't want you to stain or ruin your sidewalk or patio.

You will see what it does.
