Which is more harmful: Coffee, Coke or Alcohol?

Drink Moderately

Alcohol has lots of bad effects, but most of that either references its addictive properties or its overuse. Yet, it seems to be well established that moderate alcohol consumption is healthier than either excessive consumption or no alcohol. 

We've all seen the back and forth studies on the effects of caffeine, it's good for you, no it's bad for you, no it's good... on and on. I personally think the benefits of moderate caffeine intake outweigh the bad. 

Both coffee and Coke contain caffeine, so what is the difference between coffee and coke? The amount of sugar. Even if you take two or three lumps of sugar in your coffee, you do not approach the amount in coke. A 12-ounce can of regular Coke contains 39 grams of total sugar, which is about 9 1/3 teaspoons of sugar.

Excess sugar is finally being exposed as much more dangerous than previously thought. It used to be we were warned off fat. Now we know it's not as bad as previously thought, and not nearly as bad as excess sugar. Moderate use of caffeine or alcohol would probably not be harmful to most humans, but even ONE Coke contains more refined sugar than a human should consume in an entire day.

That makes Coca-cola the winner as the most harmful by far.
