Negative Article About VitaminWater on Well-known Newspaper

The Huffinton Post published an article titled "The Dark Side of Vitaminwater". The important message IN THE WHOLE article breaks down to the following points taken directly from the article:
  • In a staggering feat of twisted logic, lawyers for Coca-Cola are defending the lawsuit by asserting that "no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage."
  • the product is basically sugar-water, to which about a penny's worth of synthetic vitamins have been added. And the amount of sugar is not trivial. A bottle of vitaminwater contains 33 grams of sugar, making it more akin to a soft drink than to a healthy beverage.
  • How many people with weight problems have consumed products like vitaminwater in the mistaken belief that the product was nutritionally positive and carried no caloric consequences? How many have thought that consuming vitaminwater was a smart choice from a weight-loss perspective? The very name "vitaminwater" suggests that the product is simply water with added nutrients, disguising the fact that it's actually full of added sugar

Please don't believe everything you hear in advertisements... and even more importantly, do not believe that because it is sold in a store it is safe, effective, and healthy.
