It is true that Coke has phosporic acid and I remember posting it somewhere in geetham... It was posted by dinesh "Fizzy drinks" and something..

Even coke bottle (OR) can does tell that it contains Phosporic acid.. what surprised me was how they claim that it is not harmful..

Phosphoric acid is present in many naturally occuring fruits and products like milk, cheese, fish eggs and certain cereals that we eat in one form or another.

Other thing is that it is essential for teeth and bone formation. So u cannot term it as harmfull...

Just the word acid makes it look harmful.
