The article that i just read was in Dr. Mercola's newsletter. It states that its a class action suit that says coco-cola is illegally marketing its vitamin water line as being healthy when it is not. in the suit they say that the vitamin water is not healthy that all it is, is sugar water, just like soft drinks, only with a few added vitamins. I am so glad that people are waking up and making big companies tell the truth about their products, how many people out their are drinking this stuff because they believe that it is good for them. If you would like to read the article, or just look over the newsletter. you cam find it at mercola.com or if you pm me your e-mail address i will send you the article

Well if you look at the back of the bottle you should just know that it is bad, though you don't even have to because it has weird artificial coloring and tastes too sweet to be healthy. In my biology class we also learned that it is impossible to absorb real vitamins through a drink like that, that is not how the body gets vitamins... Companies are just making money off of the whole healthy movement, though no one is getting healthy because there are barely any honest companies out there giving us what we are asking for, they just keep adding sugar, and chemicals that we can't pronounce!

I don't think Coca-Cola makes anything healthy. I bet their bottled water is full of toxic waste.

Well it is the law that every product has to have the proper ingredients, amount of calories and amount of fats the product has. It is good that people are not buying everything they see and check the product labels. Well I agrre with you, that companies cannot cheat people with their products because it can effect their health .

I buy viatmin water once in a blue moon, partly for the taste and partly for the vitamins. But I READ the label, which is why I KNEW that it was full of sugar and excess calories...which is what these people suing would have found out, if they had bothered to read. Craziness.

If the nutrition info on the label accurately represents what is in the bottle, then these people have no gripe. It is time that people start taking responsibility for themselves. Coke wants to stay in business, people have got to stop acting like victims and take control of their lives.
