Maybe we have also to buy that aspartame is not bad to the health? Is that the reason why every product containing aspartame (acesulfame k, fenilalanin) must have labeled that "contains a source of fenilalanin". And that is because if you take to much fenilalanin you probably get cancer and just check how many products you consume that have "sources of fenilalanin" like aspartame or acesulfame k. Nothing new to see corporations defending their poisons. Coca cola zero? Zero calories? And how much aspartame? Coca cola is allways a risk to health because or have some incredible 39% sugar or have fenilalanin sources that cause cancer. People should get informed of what are drinking and eating because everyday our food is more and more poisoned by chemicals that we don´t know much about.

There has been no indication what ingredient that Venezeula considers "dangerous", so we should not speculate. If you wish to get yourself informed, please read Wikipedia's articles on aspartame instead of spreading misinformation yourself. Phenylalanine is dangerous to the rare few who have the disease phenylketonuria - for everyone else it is an essential nutrient and for no one is it a cause of cancer.

I do not like no calorie Coke. The only nutrition in Coke is sugar; without it there is no nutritional value at all. Water is very much better for health. I totally agree that no one should be drinking the stuff. -Funicode (talk) 03:49, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

I don't like it either, but that's no reason to ban it. If Coke Zero has no nutritional value at all, neither does water. If the water itself is considered "nutritious," then so is Coke Zero since it's >99% water. I'll reserve any judgment about its healthfulness until someone can produce something more than vague innuendo and pseudoscience against it. (talk) 08:03, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh come on![edit]

First they ban the Simpsons and now this! Do Venezuelans hate foreign culture or is their government bordering on communism?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)


They probably did this because of their extreme repudiation to the United States. Yeah... I agree... Coca Cola Zero sucks, but they kicked it out of Venezuela for the reason I gave first :P --Diego Grez return fire 23:00, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

What does the last paragraph have to do with anything? Why is there no mention of aspartame? — (talk) 13:00, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Good Decision With Bad Intention[edit]

Although I don't agree with the ban of Coke Zero in Venezuela which is as a result of their nationalistic agenda, we should also note that the product doesn't have any good food values. Yes, while there's no scientific evidence of any harmful ingredients, it definitely doesn't add any value. For example, by juicing your own fruits and vegetable, this is the best way to get 100% of the food values predigested in your blood stream. Read The Best Juicer Reviews and you will hear of all the benefits that juicing affords.

This is one of those decisions that's good but for the wrong reason or is accompanied with bad intention.
