    Give a kid a coke once in a while it won't kill him.

    Give a kid a coke everytime he needs a drink and it won't kill him but it's not healthy either.

    It's just like everything else people, everything in moderation.

    Too much of anything is not good even water.

    At the hospital the dietiticians regularly encouraged cokes to some of my elderly patients because of the sugar content and for hydration since many won't touch water.  And the elderly tend to lose their taste buds and need something that stimulates their taste buds a little more.  At least those who are not diabetic I mean.

    But like I said "Moderation".

      moderation is great yes, and drink it if you choose, yes. But do not advertise it as healthy.

    Hmmm, Coke will dissolve mortar after it has even harden. So, I guess it must be healthy to put in our system.

    I don't see that source calling Coke healthy anywhere.  Just safe.  And I think it is safe to drink coke, just like it is safe to eat ice cream or drink tea--just not in pathologically huge amounts.

      I drank about eight Cokes a day until 2007; it makes me puke now. I checked, and they changed the formula that year. I can't drink it no more.
