instead of asking google, what is HFCS and what about drinking sugar
free soda like Coke Zero? (is the gas not also bad for you? - eating
your stomach lining or somesuch?)
And is actual sugar healthy? - I thought it is all about the calories
and not supersize at Burger King, etc?

and now you have me thinking about how dr pete tastes *sigh* (as I have
no clue...)
