If people want to rot their teeth out by drinking this type of rubbish it surely is UP TO THEM.
I'm no fad of these types of drinks -- and honestly I can say in Europe almost everyone under the age of about 23 seems to be carrying at least ONE can of these "Fizzy Drinks" for which they will pay a heavy penalty later in life -- the acid in these drinks rots the gums and eats through tooth enamel -- but that's THEIR choice.
A better solution would be to outlaw drinking this stuff on public streets so users of these vile tasteless concoctions have to go through the same rigmarole as Cigarette smokers in public places.
