Sugar is totally harmless, now caffeine on the other hand, truly is 
horrifying. Just don't try and have kids with anyone who drank the 
stuff and you'll be fine.

Why people go through so much trouble to replace the yummy one with 
something scary, and keep the bad one and even add more, can only 
involve capitalism.

Or, maybe people are just so lazy and or stupid, that they think a few 
sugar calories are the cause of their misery... yea, that's probably 
it. Damn public schools.
