    Cristiano Ronaldo Disses Coke For Water...Coke's Market Value Drops $4 Billion

    https://www.espn.com/soccer/portugal...e-fall-by-$4bn

    ...The Portugal captain was visibly troubled when he saw two bottles of the carbonated soft drink in front of him as he sat down to speak to the media on Monday in Budapest ahead of his national team's Group F opener against Hungary.

    Ronaldo, an advocate of a healthy diet, moved the glass bottles out of the camera frame and instead held up a bottle of water and said in Portuguese: "Water!"

    Coca-Cola saw its share price drop by 1.6% to $55.22 soon after Ronaldo's actions. The market value went from $242bn to $238bn -- a $4bn drop...

    Exactly, was just talking to someone seriously about this.

    Worldwide it's just insane. It goes beyond regulations too. They guy has nothing to do with Coke. But the event organizers did. So maybe it's not so far beyond regulations as they could be held responsible being in contract with Coke.

    Or something like that.

    Something will have to be done here, some corporate lobbyist will start the ball rolling for change.

    Could be mobile if you are on mobile.

    Sometimes the mobile is a little different. I'm at the computer all day and see that difference a lot.

    Cheers 19th, hope all is well with you.

    So bad for your health.

    So bad.

    The only benefit is it's effect on nausea, depending on what causes the nausea.

    I use coke and 7 up when I have to take pain meds.

    It helps out a lot.

    Then again, so does potato salad.

    The drink was invented in 1885 by John Pemberton, a pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia, who made the original formula in his backyard. Pemberton's recipe contained cocaine in the form of an extract of the coca leaf, which inspired the “Coca” part of the beverage's name.

    Since then, Coca-Cola has used a cocaine-free coca leaf extract. Today, that extract is prepared at a Stepan Company plant in Maywood, New Jersey, the only manufacturing plant authorized by the federal government to import and process coca leaves, which it obtains from Peru and Bolivia.

    Coke is not that bad for you.

    Just have one with breakfast. One.

    Then two with lunch and three with dinner. Thatís why they sell them in six packs, DUH, theyíre trying to help you enjoy coke daily in MODERATION

    He's right. All you need to drink is water, coffee and wine. Maybe a little milk if you tolerate.

    Not only is it basically sugar water, sugar you don't need, but it's also bad for your bones.

    Coke is more than water and sugar.

    The phosphoric acid, if you take in too much, will create imbalances in the body that will lead to decreased bone density.

    So, that's not good.

    I will drink a Diet Coke here and there, I know theyíre bad for you but here and there, whatever. Usually donít even have them around the house. But some people live off coke and Diet Coke and that is just wild to me. Like a lot of radio hosts will just crack open cokes throughout a show every single day, like wtf are you doing man?? You just had like 7 Cokes in 3 hours!

    Exactly Tex, moderation.

    The only person who gets a pass is Frank Beard of ZZ Top who drinks Tab through every single one of their sets. Heís allowed to do whatever he wants because heís in the best band of all time.

    But they did discontinue Tab so I wonder what this will mean for him? What if he drops dead if he goes a day without Tab?

    Apparently you can still get Tab on Amazon, according to one post itís still produced in the Los Angeles area. You gotta pay out the ass for it though. But I guess Frank Beard is in the clear, heís got the money to support his habit.
