    The Most OVERLOOKED Peat Quote

    Cancer Is NOT Addicted To Glucose, As Previously Thought

    If You're Looking For Coca Cola Made With Real Sugar

    .....Be on the lookout right now for bottles with the yellow caps. Coke makes a limited amount with real sugar this time of year, as it is kosher for Passover (I think cause HFCS is considered levened). Probably have a week or two to find and stock up.
