It’s not a minor thing to ban beverage without proofs supporting a real public health issue. This makes more likely to take further decisions based on ideological intolerance. How a radical democrat could miss that?   Regards,A.

Only recently (last year I think) has the ban been partially lifted. I've tried Coke Zero, and looked at the ingredient list. It's clearly a nasty drink. By forwarding this article it makes me think you will grab at anything to try to criticize the current Venezuelan government, so it makes me less likely to listen to you on this subject. By the way, as someone who has grown up with BBC news I can tell you quite plainly that is is not objective and follows a definite political agenda.
