Disadvantages: too much of it would not be good
The Coca Cola drink is withouth doubt the most popular soft drink in the world.
Its origin date back at the end of the 19th century and was initially meant to be a kind of "energy drink" for medical purposes.the success of the formula was such, though, that it turned into a money spinning soft drink (although the term "carbonated drink" is many times used to refer to Coca Cola)
Together with a product which surely appeals to many, the marketing skills of this company are to account for its widespread presence on this planet. Clever adverts, sponsorship of key event and cute and smart commercials over Christmas all conjured to create in the mind of the collectivity an idea that Cocal Cola is a good drink to have.
As a fact, there are different opinions on whether this is the case or not.
There are also all kind of stories and experiments to prove the power of Coca Cola.
Personally, I have reduced the amount of Coca Cola I am drinking over the years. At some point I was drinking a couple of cans per day. Coca Cola contains caffeine and although I do not drink coffee, or actually right because of this, I think I got slightly addicted to the buzz it gives me.
My office life was a bit more demanding and I really felt that Coca Cola gave me a bit of a buzz, It did not help having subsidized cans of Coke in the office either.
These days I am less dependendant. I still liek a cold can of coke from the fridge particularly in summer, when I come back home from outdoor sports. But overall I have come to reduce the amount of fizzy drinks I take.
I do not think Coca Cola is necessarily a bad thing, in fact I think it is probably bad as fizzy drinks go.
Drink with moderation is my advice.
3/5 is my rating, and this is because I want to express the balance between the positive and negative sides of this drink.
Summary: still a good drink to have
