Coca cola is turning us into caffeine addicts

February 5, 2007 9:01pm CST
I never liked coke very much, but about a month a go I had a couple of glasses in a day. The taste was horrible, yet I still craved it! I also recently heard that a study found there is enough caffeine in coke to make it addictive, yet it makes no difference to the taste. Is this morally wrong by the Coca Cola Company? I believe so! Lets face it, carbonated drinks just are not healthy, they have too much phosphate in them for correct bone formation, the carbonic acid is meant to dissolve our bones, and of course it is encouraging obesity problems.

A lot of foods have additives in them to make you want to eat more of them such as monosodium glutamate. However caffine is worse as it is addictive and I think it should be banned from coke. it is different in coffee and tea because it is naturally occuring in those products and people are aware it is there, although I'm not sure all people realise there is a lot of caffine in chocolate too (or perhaps they choose to ignore it).

All of those energy drinks and coffee and such are all doing just as great of a job in contributing to caffeine addiction. :P
