Is coke or pepsi good for you?

Your sentiments on their products? My mom told me if you put a shark teeth in a tub of coke, it will disolve in about a week.

I hardly ever drink soda...but if have an upset stomach ginger ale or regular coke makes it better.

Stop trolling, OP.

Of course it is not good for you. You knew that before you asked.

It can't be that bad if it hasn't been banned as a corrosive. How many people have you heard of that died of Coke or Pepsi? None. So stop it.

R2, Used to occasionally drink ginger ale until I found that it also contains a massive amount of high-fructose corn syrup, and at the very latest is just wasted calories and money. Try mint tea instead for an upset stomach.

It's not bad, but it's not good either. Bad for your teeth, and too much leads to weight gain and diabetes.

There's a lot of profit to be made from Pepsi and Coke. And that's the real reason it hasn't been banned. Along with corn syrup and sugar (oh, excuse me, I meant to say evaporated cane syrup), which are actual poisons to the body.

Does sugar (and fake sugar) kill people? Yes, yes, yes. Absolutely. A slow, miserable death with lots of falling apart along the way. Soda pop is not good for anyone.

Ginger tea is better for stomach upset than ginger ale. They don't make real ginger ale anymore (except in health food stores). Ginger ale these days is made from synthetic flavorings which are cheaper. But it's quite easy to just buy ginger tea, which is the real thing, or just by ginger root, and slice a little into hot water.

Use stevia or xylitol instead of sugar. And raw honey to add to tea.

I buy plain bubbly waters (that have actual mineral content) and drink a lot of it. It's a great substitute. I like the Apollinaris brand. I know they don't harm em at all and might even support me a little with the minerals.

Yeah I assume the OP is trolling. It is nothing but sugar and chemical flavorings. It is literally completely devoid of any nutritional value.

Coke makes a helluva douche. Pepsi has less fizz, so it's not quite as tingly up there.

ginger tablets are also very good (whole foods sells them). Even ginger Altoids help with nausea

Drinking club soda is the best for an upset stomach.

I had to get my two front teeth bonded because of the wear from drinking so much pop.

Put another way r4, the OP troll is asking a rhetorical question.

Anonyumpy posting again.

My high school chemistry teacher hated Coke, so he put a tooth in a glass of Coke and left it out until it dissolved.

One of the kids brought in milk and orange juice and did the same experiment. Teeth actually dissolved faster in milk and orange juice than in the Coke.

Peppermint tea is great for an upset stomach. Avoid ginger ale because of the corn syrup

I used to drink coke like it was going out of style when I was a teen. like a 6 pack a day. Parents couldn't stop me, but I did switch to diet at least.

I am now 50 years old and I polish off about a 2 liter bottle a day no problem. I have no health problems, have all my teeth, people say I look younger then I am and I don't have a weight problem.

Is it good for me? No. Is it bad? Only in the sense that water would be better.

That BS about fake sugar (aspartame) is just that bullshit. 30 years later, they have never proved anyone got brain cancer or gained more weight like you here over and over from the teetotalers.
