Coca Cola - Deliberate Lies

In late 2008, Coca Cola advertised in the news print in Australia that its product

  • does NOT cause tooth decay, and
  • does NOT make you fat.
  • does NOT contain caffine

After in inquiry by the ACCC, Coca Cola had to retract from its misleading statements
as its products

  • DO cause tooth decay,
  • can contribute to being overweight.
  • DO contain caffine

In the early renditions of the popular drink the formula contained cocaine.

Also "Coke" was known for its properties in cleaning an Australian copper 2c coin to mint condition, the acid that also strips teeth of their enamel.
