Coke Zero has been banned in Venezuela because of possible health risks.

The government, led by Hugo Chavez, ordered the removal of the soft drink from stores while its ingredients are investigated.

Health minister Jesus Mantilla said: "The product should be withdrawn from circulation to preserve the health of Venezuelans."

He did not specify which ingredients were causing concern or what health risks they posed.

Coca Cola and its Mexican-based bottling company, Femsa, said in a joint statement: "Coca Cola Zero is made under the highest quality standards around the world and meets the sanitary requirements demanded by the laws of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela."

Coke Zero tastes horribly, and it's probably cancerous. No sugar, but with added artificial sweeteners :/

it uses Sucralose, the least researched of the artificial sweeteners - atleast its not Aspartame though, which metabolizes into toxic by products

in anycase, there is no scietific evidence to suggest Sucralose is bad, Venz. are just a bunch of jumpy tards

It has some different ingredients in South America, ones that are banned in the US.

I'm surprised he doesn't ban all evil imperialist American Coke products but then his people would revolt :)

And Coke Zero tastes great. It has like no calories or sugar so you can drink as much as you want without any concerns.

It is still an acid, it still corrodes your teeth.

They should ban themselves for being harmful.

Coke Zero is just as potent and healthy as anything else.

    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.

    but you are doing it so it is still doable
