"LEGIT" may be, - but rubbish.
In your opinion.

I think it is more personal choice, preferences and how you were brought up. There was never Coca Cola in my home growing up, so I have never consumed it and have no desire to, - in part based upon knowledge of the content.

McDonald's, Starbucks, and Burger King for example were not part of my life as a child or as a teenager, so consequently they are not part of my life as an adult. I have no desire to enter their establishment, because I know I have much more healthier choices available and because of my knowledge (word of mouth from others) of how employees are treated for example.

It is a health-hazard like many other similar drinks.

The acid rots the teeth and weakens the bones.

The chemical caramel contains carcinogens (cancer causing substances).

Excessive artificial sweetener increases appetite and cravings, causing the consumer to eat and drink more and more.

The digested aspartame/artificial sweeteners break down into amino acids, one of which is formaldehyde - a known human carcinogen.

The high-fructose corn syrup is another form of concentrated sugar, known to increase body fat, cholesterol and triglycerides and again increases appetite.

Potassium benzoate preservative already an irritant to eyes and skin, coupled with ascorbic acid in the same drink causes benzene to form - a carcinogen.

Food dyes cause impaired brain function and lack of impulse control.
Formaldehyde is not an amino acid. Amino acids are not carcinogen (except in the same way as dihydro-monoxide, where as some carcinogens contain amino acids and all cancer cells contain amino acids)

I have enough information (sources: press and internet), to make a personal choice not to drink Coca Cola and many other of their beverages, wherever they tell you it is produced. I am sure many people worldwide have done the same.
You may want to supplement that information with answers to the question "Is formaldehyde an amino acid?"

There is plenty of evidence on the internet for chemtrails too.

It is not about dissecting one piece of information on a list of reasons that Coca Cola is a health-hazard. It is about considering the whole picture and seeing how much evidence there is.

Actually it's pretty important. If one 'fact' on a list is blatantly false, then the credibility of the rest of the list is very easily called into question. And the whole statement can easily be dismissed.

Please understand that this no way invalidates your personal choice, but it does invalidate your evidence backing up your choice, so you should not push your choice onto others.

I don't like fish, it makes me sick. But I would never berate anyone for eating fish if they want too, and I certainly would not start on about the high levels of heavy metals and the damage to the marine ecosystem in an attempt to stop eating fish. And even if I was so inclined, I would not just copy-paste internet 'facts' but actually research (by reading scientific journals or such) the reasons why man should not eat fish.

live and let live. But please do not undermine your own argument.

Starbucks Coffee is overpriced but good. At home we had Aproz Cola and Süssmost and Sinalco and Rivella. BurgerKing and McDonalds only became existing when I was above 30. When I grew up, lots of Restaurants at lunch offered SCHNIPO (Schnitzel & PommesFrites) only which was not exactly healthy, and the employees were treated by many owner like shit

Wine, fois-gras, caviar, sex and motorcycles weren't part of my life as a child or teenager, but they certainly ARE a part of my life as an adult.

Did you not do (something like):??
Getting the evening going with 2 bottles of Hungarian red for a Ł5 from the local Spar
Walking into town to Ritzy's before 2230 for free entry, loading up before 2300 when the drinks prices went up
Getting lucky and heading home for a game of hide the sausage

Or was that just me?

Ok, there was beer, sex, and motorcycles as a teenager, but not wine, nor as a child.

Well, you second hand knowledge of how employees are treated is absolutely worthless.

I, on the other hand, have first hand knowledge of how their employees are treated, and they are treated quite well.

If people were simply to stop buying Coca Cola products etc. altogether, then they would save even more money on their grocery bill, not to mention on their medical bills.
And what exactly do you propose to drink Johnny Walker red label with then ?
