The high-fructose corn syrup in Coke (and other soft drinks) didn’t help.

Nobody forces you to go to the store, purchase the Coke, and then drink its contents.

If someone did a little digging I’d be willing to bet that the US consumes more corn syrup than anywhere else in the world. I’d also be willing to bet that it has a lot to due with the rising obesity and diabetes rates in the US.

Follow the money. Corn subsidies for agribusiness, fat sick people dependent on high priced pharmaceuticals, surgery etc..

Coke made for the South American market still uses cane sugar.
Some grocery stores carry it in the import or kosher section.

Didn't hurt either. HFCS and sucrose offer the same number of calories. Unless you think glucose and fructose from HFCS is different than glucose and fructose from sucrose.
