It's not just the amount, but the high fructose corn syrup. This really bothers me that all the news reports, advice from TV doctors, etc., all say that sugar is a problem. It's not sugar it HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!!!!! I've read the studies and HFCS is a cause for obesity, liver damage, heart disease, high cholesterol, among a plethora of other problems. To have heard on 60 Minutes that there is no difference between sugar and HFCS is such a lie. HFCS does NOT metabolize at all the same a real cane sugar does. HFCS goes straight to the liver and turns to fat.
The other problem in this country especially, is the over indulgence in food consumption. This doesn't happen in most of Europe which, if you visit most any country, especially Scandinavia, you will not see many (if any) morbidly obese people. These countries also promote bike riding and walking. None of the foods or drinks contain HFCS, most vegetables are served in season, and there are no GMO foods.

Only in New York. The king of Liberalism and leader of picking the Socialist government. Hope you, and your sister state of California, fall into the ocean to better the U.S.A.

I think they should put a large warning lable on them; but let people make thier own decisions about what they drink.
