Along with that, I think somebody should point out that fuit juice is almost as bad as soda.

True...! ...but it's kinda difficult to drink massive amounts of juice. Try it sometime - your brain says "stop drinking now!" much sooner than with soda.

Soda is concocted so that the sugar goes down easily.

Maybe if you had bottled water, you'd drink it instead of coke and other nasty things.
Despite popular belief, tap water, even with a Britta, is nothing like bottled water which is actually nice to drink.

How does it feel to be sitting at that table, Chas?

And those companies pay about the same amount per megalitre of water as you do per bottle!

Yep. Is there a single reason why soda companies would WANT people to keep on drinking soda? Soda has water+ingredients. Ingredients cost money.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's really the soda companies paying for all the 'Sugar is poison!' stories.
